Learning Alongside My Children


Before having children I would have probably just said “eeewww,” and wouldn’t have paid much attention to this spider if I came across in my yard.


But now that I school my children, I can honestly say, I am learning right along with them…..and loving it! 

I am learning to…organize my time and use it more wisely.

I am learning to… stop what I am doing and observe.

I am learning to…take advantage of a teaching moment.  I love the excitement and joy on their faces when they see something new, and their curiosity to learn about it.

I am learning to… realize how blessed I am to be given this opportunity to school my children.  It is the hardest, but most wonderful job I have ever been given.

I am learning to… take in the beauty of this world that God has created for us……and yes, that even includes this Black and Yellow Garden Spider.


  1. What a beautifully icky spider ;)

  2. Amen, sister! Learning alongside our children is one of the best things about HSing!

  3. I wholeheartedly agree. Thanks for sharing Kattie!

  4. It is amazing just how much we can learn about the world when we see it through the eyes of our children:)
