  • Actual happiness looks pretty squalid in comparison with the overcompensations for misery. And, of course, stability isn’t nearly so spectacular as instability. And being contented has none of the glamour of a good fight against misfortune, none of the picturesqueness of a struggle with temptation, or a fatal overthrow by passion or doubt. Happiness is never grand. - Aldous Huxley, Brave New World
  • Education
    "Must we always teach our children with books? Let them look at the stars and the mountains above. Let them look at the waters and the trees and flowers on Earth. Then they will begin to think, and to think is the beginning of a real education." -David Polis
  • "Above all, do not lose your desire to walk: every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness; I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it... but by sitting still, and the more one sits still, the closer one becomes to feeling ill... Thus if one just keeps walking, everything will be all right." -Soren Kierckgaard
  • Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. - Albert Camus
  • How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. Annie Dillard

The boys are looking so much older than they did in October, it is hard to believe how quickly they are growing up. The last photo of Silas skating is my favorite. He sure is a die-hard skater! We miss you all so much.


Yes, that is a great photo of Silas skating! I love the gloop stuff they made, we make something similar and it is fun! I wrote down the name of the science book, looks like a great recommendation! The water/plumbing activity looks like perfect fun for a wintery day!!



Is the gloop you make just cornstarch water?  That is all ours is, but I used too much water. 

Silas is forcing me to take him skating now it is COLD I dont want to go!
