It is true. Right now it is raining. Delightfully so. The sound of the gentle pitter-patter of the rain hitting my mini-forest-backyard-that-is-not-really-mine-but-I-say-it-is-anyways is so soothing compared to the awful heat and humidity we’ve had for the past two weeks. And it makes me want to do absolutely nothing.
The reason I didn’t get to post last Thursday is because the Guy and I were taking a trip, and I was busy being lazy on my two weeks of summer vacation so I didn’t prepare beforehand and write a post. Oh well. But we went on our trip to Golena, IL and Dubuque, IA. It was nice to have a getaway for a bit where we just had some time to spend by ourselves. It was actually the first time where the two of us have spent an entire day together (just the two of us without family or friends) ever. Ever. (So yeah, it was our honeymoon, just almost a year after we got married.) It was fun! I think there’s going to be a few posts on some of the things we did or saw.
So the Guy and I were having a conversation the other day. (We actually have conversations often.) We are coming up on our one year anniversary and we were discussing if we would still be considered newlyweds after our first year of marriage. The Guy said that we might be considered newlyweds even after two years of marriage. I don’t know when someone, or some couple, transitions from newlywed into anything else. And what does it transition into anyways?
This is my last post on the book What is Education? for my blog for school. Thanks for bearing through my contemplative mish mash over the past few weeks. If you didn’t notice, my posts seemed to get shorter and shorter as we went through the book. I think I started to have less and less to say. Or maybe I just didn’t know what to say. This post is not a post on a chapter of the book, but my end of term definition of education (ETDE). It’s what I came up with after finishing this course, and what I think the essence of education for me is. Note that this is my definition. It doesn’t have to be yours.
Chapter 5. Two more chapters to go!
