We’ll Go Further : 

We’ll Go Further

Slide 2: 

Some of us…we just knew before our children were born.

Slide 3: 

Some of us knew shortly after we gave birth…nursing our babies day and night, rocking them in our arms, watching their first reactions …we knew that something was different.

where there are fewer boundaries. : 

where there are fewer boundaries. Some of us believe that Learning is as natural as Life itself. And so Learning should happen in a natural environment….

Slide 6: 

For some of us, it took a wee bit longer. We realized when they got older that our children do not belong in the walls of a classroom. Nobody had prepared us for this. NOW what?!

Slide 7: 

Some of us cried and screamed, over and over for help. Nobody understood...

Slide 8: 

…and the pain was so strong that there were NO WORDS to describe it….

Slide 10: 

So we gave up… and brought them back home.

Slide 11: 

Many of us embrace the opportunity to learn again with our children….to reclaim some of our own childhood.

Slide 12: 

Some of us simply don’t know what else to do. Our options are limited. At this time.

Slide 13: 

And yet, for some of us … we still don’t know why we do it. We just do. We are brave.

But some things we know for sure… : 

But some things we know for sure… They are passionate. They believe. They know what they want… yet they need us so badly.

Slide 15: 

They are young. They need time enough to play.

Slide 16: 

They have passions.

Slide 17: 

They dance. And play soccer.

Slide 18: 

They’re gymnasts

Slide 19: 

They paint. They swim. They’re musicians. They ski. And they have stories to tell.

Slide 20: 

They are compassionate…

Slide 21: 

…and true to themselves.

But sometimes… : 

But sometimes…

Sometimes… : 

Sometimes… They still cry for help. And so do we.

Slide 24: 

Sometimes, we even cry more often than our children. Because the load we carry is simply too heavy.

Slide 25: 

Sometimes, our children feel lost. Or confused. And so do we.

Slide 26: 

Sometimes, we become so focused on learning that we think we have forgotten how.

Slide 27: 

Sometimes we need to take three steps backwards so we can move forward again.

But MOST often… : 

But MOST often… we Believe.

Slide 29: 

We embrace our children’s individualities and we celebrate them. We celebrate the freedom our kids have and the choices they are given.

Slide 30: 

We learn WITH our children.

Slide 31: 

We get to know our children in a way that most parents don’t experience. We are so fortunate.

Slide 32: 

We absorb every moment with them now, while they’re young. We are very wise.

Slide 33: 

We have so many reasons for what we do. And we are all so different, yet… Our differences are what brings us together.

Slide 34: 

And By Coming Together, We Will Go Further.
