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!

Paris- Day one

Today we woke up early and traveled around Paris. When we got to our first stop Musee d'Orsay a strike was going on, and they didn't know when it was going to open. So we decided to travel to the Rodin museum instead. It was a euro each and we got to see the sculptures in the garden. It was really nice. We then traveled past Les Invalides (Napolean's tomb) and learned a little history about Paris itself. We then took a quick stop on the metro and got to the Arc de Triumph. It was a gorgeous day and we could see for ever. After getting a quick lunch we headed to a shopping area of Paris. Our family looked at the Art Nouveau and traveled up to the top to see the sights. We then went back to the museum and it was open! We saw some cool new pieces by Monet and Degas. We couldn't take photos, but we wanted to capture the moment so we bought some postcards. Once we were done with the museum we headed towards the Notre Dame area. After resting our feet a little we went up to the church and walked along the Seine. At nine we headed up the Eiffel Tower. We were excited because we had never done the tower before at night. We actually went all the way to the top, but we found that we liked the view from the bottom much better. When we came back down the lights turned on, and we walked down with a bright Eiffel tower. When we reached a viewing area across the river the little sparkly lights went off. They were mesmerizing.
