“While we teach, we learn.” — Seneca
Preschool started again last week for Lollipop and Giggles. It’s been a welcome change to have them back on a daytime routine that does not include hours-long stretches of enforced silence while the baby naps in our teeny-tiny European apartment (as if enforced silence actually works with the pint-sized crowd). While the fixed schedule, international friends, and abundant opportunities to exercise their vocal chords have been wonderful, we’ve found that the kiddos don’t actually need their Romanian preschool to learn. Every day in this temporary home country of ours, we’re trying out new words or new parks or new foods. We’re stuffing our pockets with pretty new weeds or wrinkly new seeds. And we’re finding adventure in everyday outings like trips to the bakery, the hardware store, and, um, the orthopedic surgeon. The best part? The grown-ups learn, too.
See more back-to-school at Beth’s on Thursday.
