The "Good Day of Learning" posts started here, with Theresa at Lapaz Farm Home Learning.
Then I added my two cents' worth here and here.
The always-eloquent-and-thinking Willa chimed in here.
And Lissa, who had been inspiring us with her posts about Waldorf methods added a bit more to the subject here.
Melanie very sensibly pointed us to Suzanne's Inch-by-Inch post here.
And, Melanie's own thought (even though she wrongly discounts herself as not having any thoughts on the subject), in this post, is spot on:
For me a good day is one when I put my own needs and desires aside and get down on the floor and laugh with Bella. For Bella learning happens naturally as breathing and painfully as the dozen times a day she falls and screams. I hope that learning will continue to be as natural and beautiful but that we can keep the bumping and screaming to a minimum.Yes! That's my goal as well, even though my kids are now 13, 10 and 4. Natural, beautiful, and with minimal bumping and screaming. (You're a natural at this homeschooling stuff, Melanie.)
