Who Needs School?

Rachel discovered addition this morning.

She came up to me in the kitchen when I was cleaning up from breakfast and held up her little fingers, two on one hand and one on the other. "Look Mom," she said. "Two fingers on this hand and one finger on this hand makes three fingers!" "Yes, it does," I answered. (The child is obviously a genius. She's only four.)

She went on to add all the way to ten with fingers on one hand plus fingers on the other. She was so excited. I love to see that moment when things "click" and they learn something new. It will never cease to amaze me- whether they are four or fourteen. Just another blessing of homeschooling!
