About the trees...

I changed the blog a little, I really wanted to reflect that we are growing and what better way than with a tree to symbolize that growth?

- Growing roots with faith studies and family mentoring, teaching & reaching with our shepherding the heart philosophy
- Goal to raise strong, whole persons can withstand a bit of weather and changing of seasons
- the branches to symbolize our task of providing a liberal arts education, reaching out to learn in all areas
- our never-ending love of nature, beauty and God's glorious creation

This tree is actually in our backyard, I took the picture this morning as the sun was shining through the branches. It gives me such a peaceful, filled with love and joy feeling.

I love the tree theme too! I'll have to ponder what you said about the symbolism of trees. I've been trying to think of a name for my Latin-enrichment ideas (instead of actual doing any work on it!) and trees & wolves have been my 2 main themes...maybe someday when I'm famous (ha ha) I'll be able to say "And a special thanks to my friend Jessica's blog..." Actually, I can already say that -- you've sure helped me to grow!! :)
