The Solar Eclipse – A Teachable Moment

If there is anything that I have learned since becoming a parent, it is that every moment is teachable.  And believe it or not on this journey, I am sure that I have learned just as much if not more than they have.  Simply because children are inquisitive and they very rarely accept that you do not have the answers.  And, if in fact you don’t, they expect you to find out.  I am almost convinced that kids are the one that coined the “I’ll Wait” movement.  So in teaching them, I find myself fascinated by things that never even remotely peeked my interest before, such as the upcoming Total Solar Eclipse.  Fueled by the fact that both the School Board and the Internet are making a big deal about it, it has become an ongoing conversation in my home lately. I love watching how my children soak up knowledge and then are able to just spew it back out to you at a later time. may they always be like little sponges.
