Summer with Lilu

The accomplished fingerpainter produces her latest masterpieces.

There is a lot of outdoor adventures this summer- including goats at the petting zoo, romps in the park and running off to visit kpaw and nana in her new slicker.
O course, there is spaghetti eating, playing with a new toy and shopping at Costco!

Lilu plays piano, tries on a new outfit and plays with Flower the cat and mommy.
Life is good at Lilu's place!

"Regard man as a mine rich in gems of inestimable value. Education can, alone, cause it to to reveal its treasures, and enable mankind to benefit therefrom."

"Education is of three kinds: material, human and spiritual. Material education is concerned with the progress and development of the body, through gathering its sustenance, its material comfort and ease...
 Human education signifies civilisation and progress: that is to say, government, administration, charitable works, trades, arts and handicrafts, sciences, great inventions and discoveries, and elaborate institutions...
     Divine education is that of the Kingdom of God: it consists in acquiring divine perfections, and this is true education..."
"Most important of all is the training of girl children, for these girls will one day be mothers, and the mother is the first teacher of the child."
"Give them (the children) the advantage of every useful kind of knowledge. Let them share in every new and rare and wondrous craft and art. Bring them up to work and strive, and accustom them to hardship. Teach them to dedicate their lives to matters of great import, and inspire them to undertake studies that will benefit mankind."
"The child must not be oppressed or censured because it is undeveloped; it must be patiently trained."
"...there is.. a difference in the intrinsic or natal capacity of individuals. Nevertheless although capacities are not the same, every member of the human race is capable of education."

"Many elementary sciences must be made clear to them in the nursery; they must learn them in play, in amusement. Most ideas must be taught them through speech, not through book-learning. One child must question the other concerning these things and the other must give the answer."
"You must sow the seeds of peace in the plastic minds of the children...Envelop them with the atmosphere of peace..."
"A small child who has been taught to think universally can talk with the learned."
