Educational Philosophy

Education is a social process. Education is growth. Education is not a preparation for life; education is life itself.

~ John Dewey

Our simple educational philosphy: we learn as we live and we celebrate what we learn!

Figueres, Nimes, and Avignon

Today we did a lot of traveling by bus. We first went to the Dali museum in Figueres. We enjoyed seeing the painting of Abraham Lincoln and paintings about Don Quixote. After spending time looking at his work, we found a little shop to buy waters for a great bargain and headed towards France. On the way across the border we saw some old forts from both Spain and France that were run down. We also saw some sunflowers and lots of olive trees. Three hours later, we arrived in Nimes. It was a beautiful little city very much like those we saw in Italy. The Roman Arena was the center of the old walled in city. We reviewed Roman history then rushed to the Maison Carree that we had studied in Art History last year. We took a few pictures then got back on the bus and headed on a 1 hour journey to Avignon. We barely made it to our entry time at the Palais des Papes and walked through the rooms that were the home of popes clement and Benedict. From here we went to the nicest hotel of the tour(so far) just outside the city. We will stay here for two nights before we explore more parts of France.
