Winging it with Curriculum by Stefanie Hofman, in the July/August 2009 Home Education Magazine, is a lyrical examination of what it means to be a family. Stefanie explores the similarities between a family of wild geese and her own family’s rhythms and approaches to learning:
“Everything I ever needed to know about homeschooling I learned from geese. Our recently thawed pond heralded the departure of winter and the arrival of spring. In Minnesota, spring brings cherry blossoms, red buds and Canadian geese.
Sitting there, watching the geese shepherd their babies around the grass, pecking, protecting their territory, patiently slowing their determined march towards the water, it struck me just how similar that goose family was to my own.”
