John Holt

"What makes people smart, curious, alert, observant, competent, confident, resourceful, persistent - in the broadest and best sense, intelligent- is not having access to more and more learning places, resources, and specialists, but being able in their lives to do a wide variety of interesting things that matter, things that challenge their ingenuity, skill, and judgement, and that make an obvious difference in their lives and the lives of people around them."

Today Evie cut my hair, we went sledding, she crocheted a hat, we did a bunch of reading, she worked online for awhile, we went to Zumba together--the usual.
