Forces of Nature

Greetings!

The final cheese for three cool cats. 

18th century wisdom: 

Since they want their child to be a doctor instead of a child, fathers and teachers think it never too soon to scold, correct, reprimand, flatter, threaten, promise, instruct, and reason... Do better than they; be reasonable and do not reason with your pupil… Exercise his body, his limbs, his senses, his strength, but keep his mind idle as long as you can… Let childhood to ripen in children…      
                                                        - Jean-Jacque Rousseau.  Emile, Book Two (1792)

My final thought is how childhood is indeed a beautiful, deep, and powerful force of nature. Whatever the manifestation, earth shaking thunder, swirling storms, sunny skies, torrential gloom, or warm breezes over calm seas, there’s an undeniable energy that follows a course of nature. I was honored to witness the seasons of change in your child.  

And we succeeded through third grade with one wild final week.
