"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.

Feeding tadpoles & water fleas 27 June 2011
One of En's tadpoles has grown a pair of hindlegs! She steamed a piece cabbage leaf, cut it into small pieces and fed her tadpoles. She noticed that the water fleas nibbled on the cabbage as well.
