My Greek midterm was last night, so once I was done I got to come home early, put on my flannel pjs, turn on the fire in my room, and crawl under the clean sheets with a book. Lovely, lovely, lovely.
I am one of those geek-y girls who doesn't mind tests or quizzes, who (dare I admit it?) actually kinda likes them. Pretty pencils, neat writing, filling in blanks, demonstrating what you've learned. I think it's fun.
I love to learn.
Whether it's about a place we're passing as we take a road trip (hello, iPhone, how I love thee for this most of all!),
how beavers build a dam from an IMAX documentary (did you know that a pair of beavers will fell more about 400 trees in a year? and that they make noise all the time? little, cute, talking noises?),
how our bodies work (I love our science books--we use lots of Usbourne books that have tons of cool internet links for almost every page),
or how a cathedral is built (it's been a while since I read Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follet--what a great book!)
...I love that we never have to stop learning.
I was thinking the other morning about being made in God's image, reflecting that image. And wondering if part of the way we reflect his omniscience (knowing EVERYTHING) is by delighting in learning.
What have you learned lately?
Leave a "Did you know..." comment for the rest of us!
