"Children do not need to be made to learn about the world, or shown how. They want to, and they know how." -John Holt

The case for a Point & Shoot (part 2)

We checked out the new/old museum in Dover yesterday that moved from Portsmouth. I totally thought my camera was in the car but sadly, no.

So my phone was my only other option...
There you have it. I don't even know how to blog with such poor photos to work with.

Anyway, one good thing came from having to use the phone... I learned how to send them to my email! Check out these other gems that have been waiting in phone land...
I think this was at a performace at the Palace Theatre (look at that short-haired Wook and OMG, there used to be a time Simone let me do pigtails!?!?):Aunt Jos (a.k.a the dancing queen) at Martha's last year: Big headed Bomey who looks two years old (and borderline crossed-eyed):And those good ol' SB337 days. Gosh I miss them.

"By nature people are learning animals. Birds fly; fish swim; humans think and learn. Therefore, we do not need to motivate children into learning by wheedling, bribing, or bullying. We do not need to keep picking away at their minds to make sure they are learning. What we need to do - and all we need to do - is to give children as much help and guidance as they need and ask for, listen respectfully when they feel like talking, and then get out of the way. We can trust them to do the rest."
John Holt
"In the end, the secret to learning is so simple: Think only about whatever you love. Follow it, do it, dream about it...and it will hit you: learning was there all the time, happening by itself." -Grace Llewellyn
"What we want to see is the child in pursuit of knowledge, not knowledge in pursuit of the child."
George Bernard Shaw
Real, natural learning is in the living. It's in the observing, the questioning, the examining, the pondering, the analyzing, the watching, the reading, the DO-ing, the living, the breathing, the loving, the JOY. It's in the joy. ~Anne Ohman
"How could youth better learn to live than by at once trying the experiment of living?" -Henry D. Thoreau
