When we began discussing this consortium for education of our children collectively, we realized we had different parenting styles, expectations for behavior, and temperaments of children. In short, all our personal/family baggage would be working its self out in the context of school.
As I started to make the list of topics to discuss on the opening day, I began to mull over the discussion of community and higher purpose of man kind and education. I missed most of the sermon as I was furiously scribbling down more thoughts.
I worked out an presentation to have up on the screen while I spoke as several of the students are very visual in their preferred learning style. Here is a link to the presentation.
