"Freedom to live and to think about life for its own sake is important and even essential to a child. Since we can't know what knowledge will be most needed in the future, it is senseless to try to teach it in advance. Instead, we should try to turn out people who love learning so much and learn so well that they will be able to learn whatever needs to be learned." -John Holt.

Chendor Beach at Ruby's resort 28 June 2010
There is a clean and quiet beach just a stone throw away from Ruby's resort.
As usual, Hui on the mat whereas En on the sand.
En asked " Mommy, can I join them? " When I nodded, she ran toward June, So Chau, Abby and Gabby ! It is amazing how she could blend in with them easily. And they came back with a crab, couple of hermit crabs, two dead fish and bunches of attractive shells. Hui loves how the hermit crabs move.
Then, Hui pointed to the sea and said " I want to play there ". There is sand under the sea water, I said. She nodded with a yeah.
So, there she is, ready for sand and sea. That created a smile on my face and joy in my heart, witnessing her took another milestone. Bye bye picnic mat !
Left- Girls wrote names on the sand. Right- En drew a line & acted as tightrope walker.
Left- All enjoyed burying uncle so chau's feet. Right- Unknown purple wild flowers.
