Watering Trees: The Process of Growth

Share this post via email


The ground guzzles the water as I douse our recently planted trees.

Puddles slowly gather at the base of each sapling. My mind drifts.

'It takes time for these things to grow. A little water every day. Sunshine. Good soil. We can't expect fruit for a few more years.'

And it hits me: Education is much the same way. Regular exposure. Time. Good materials. And it takes a while for the fruit of our labor to show up.

Watered Trees

So, hang in there.

What leaves, buds, flowers, or fruit have you seen in your homeschool recently?
