Thanks for stopping by. I’m glad you’re here. Please grab a warm beverage (or a cold one, if you prefer) and stay awhile.
Just like you (I presume), I have a life that keeps me very busy from day to day. In my case, it’s because I’m homeschooling four kids who are still on the younger side. So, my daily life is full of settling fights over toys, drilling math facts, reading the same Dr. Seuss books 85 times in a row, as well as the never ending cycle of laundry, meals, and cleaning. It’s the kind of “running as fast as you can just to stay in place” that can leave no time for the deeper things. No time for contemplating truth, and goodness, and beauty, that trilogy of classical philosophical enquiry.
This blog is my attempt to discover how to keep my eyes on the deeper things while also making sure that everyone is fed and clothed and learns long division. I hope you find my (mis)adventures along this path informative, or at least entertaining – int he vein of the quote, “If you can’t be a good example, you’ll just have to be a horrible warning.”
So come along for the ride, we’ll read some good books, explore good habits (and bad ones), and hopefully learn some cool things together.
