The last question was asked, at bedtime WITH the little brother in ear shot....that was a long evening.
But the truth is, these little minds are brewing. They're learning constantly, and they're hungry for more information. Facts, answers, opinions, assurances.
...and I'm thinking I get to light a fire right at this very moment.
The lighting of a fire, inspiring these minds to think on. To question more. How else does one begin to think but in asking questions?
So I'm figuring out how to stop being weary, but to respond with words that provoke more thought. To take the time to look up a word, and then discuss how it's used. To reflect on how the world views issues, what God says about these same things. I'm trying to remember not to stop the questioning. In fact, how do I breed the questions? Discussions. Research. Look my little boys in the eyes and ask them another question.
And then sometimes, I just can't do another question. This makes me think I need to start a book, or a box for questions. Hmmm.... a new idea for our learning home.
"The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing." ~ Albert Einstein
