“For the child. . . it is not half so important to know as to feel. If facts are the seeds that later produce knowledge and wisdom, then the emotions and the impressions of the senses are the fertile soil in which the seeds must grow. The years of early childhood are the time to prepare the soil. Once the emotions have been aroused – a sense of the beautiful, the excitement of the new and the unknown, a feeling of sympathy, pity, admiration or love – then we wish for knowledge about the object of our emotional response . . . It is more important to pave the way for a child to want to know than to put him on a diet of facts that he is not ready to assimilate.”
We have been blessed to have been apart of the children’s journeys, and on these journeys, there comes a point where they must leave Turning Sun. It is a bittersweet feeling- not of loss. This feeling is from a joy that we know that they are ready to fly, and we only wish we could be there every bit of the way. Congratulations, Rising Suns! You will always be loved! We are so proud and so inspired by you, everyday.
