Lilypads: Otherwise known as Ducks~Since our supply shed is back near the lake here, I drive by it a million times each day. Since I drive by it a million times a day, I see it.....but don't really look/see it. The other day one of the girls I work with says something about all of the ducks on the lake. I glance over there. Hmmm....weird. She says there are usually ducks, but not that many at one time. Really weird, I think. Upon closer inspection I see that the "ducks" are these lovely lilypads. I think it's time for a new eye exam. That or I've sat in one place far too long. Either way, I'm glad I took a closer look because they are stunning when you get up close.
"Our aim in education is to give a full life. We owe it to them to initiate an immense number of interests. Life should be all living, and not merely a tedious passing of time; not all doing or all feeling or all thinking - the strain would be too great - but, all living; that is to say, we should be in touch wherever we go, whatever we hear, whatever we see, with some manner of vital interest."
