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!

Yesterday we were reunited with the family. It was so good to see our mom and dad after 10 1/2 weeks. We took a cooking class in the he morning at Triana market. The class was in English, but we are excited to be getting recipes for everything we cooked. We cooked the typical meals that we had been eating with our Senora. It was great to be able to see how we can adjust them for allergies.

After our cooking class we picked up the family at the train station. We then went to the hotel and chilled for a little bit before we went on our own created bike tour to various locations in the city. We first biked to Maria Luisa where we saw Plaza de Espana and then we biked to Los Remedios, and Triana where we saw the mini feria. Then we walked to las setas had llao llao frozen yogurt then we went up the setas. It was great. We then walked through the shopping district to get back to have dinner just behind the cathedral. They originally said they had no room, but after two minutes waiting we were allowed in. It was great to have dinner together again and the food was very good. We then biked back to our hotel.

Today we woke up and went to meet Mercedes with the whole family. We were in charge of translating the conversation and I think that it was fun for both Mercedes and our parents to meet. We talked to her for a while before we went to the Alcazar. We already had the tickets so we got to skip the line and headed in. It was good to walk much more slowly in through the place. Afterwards we showed our family our favorite smoothie place where they use fresh fruit to make smoothies every day. We got our free smoothie and then showed them where we had classes before we biked back to rest. Both of our parents napped and ate lunch while we caught up on our journaling before we headed out. We got a sandwhich and headed to the Iglesia de San Salvador. We hadn't seen it yet so it was a pleasant surprise and it helped us skip the line into the cathedral. The cathedral was just as huge as we remembered it and we of course climbed the 36 ramps up to the top of the tower for the fantastic view. From there we went to the Hospital de los Venerables (got a little lost on the way there but who doesn't on the way to Barrio Santa Cruz??). From there we headed to a Flamenco show and then to dinner across the river. It was a great day and we are so happy to be with family again!
