A little unbridled romanticism…

Love is enough: though the World be a-waning,
And the woods have no voice but the voice of complaining,
Though the sky be too dark for dim eyes to discover
The gold-cups and daisies fair blooming thereunder,
Though the hills be held shadows, and the sea a dark wonder,
And this day draw a veil over all deeds pass’d over,
Yet their hands shall not tremble, their feet shall not falter;
The void shall not weary, the fear shall not alter
These lips and these eyes of the loved and the lover.

-William Morris

Once in a while it feels awfully good to be a starry-eyed romantic.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

    Sarah,
    Maybe you can answer a few questions for me. If your mom used a literature based approach for your schooling what did you use for science in high school? Did you switch to texts at that point? To be more specific, my boys are studying biology right now, and I find it rather dry and boring with too many facts shoved into a small space. I am using the Christian text that everyone is raving over and I am left clueless as to why it so popular. It is no different than secular texts except for the mention of God here and there. I can’t help feeling like the time spent going through this text would be better spent somewhere else. If you did go through a text then how important was it to your mom that you memorized all of the vocab for biology?
