Being creative is a huge part of our lives. The same goes for the lives of my nieces and nephews, and many of my friends. I found out that we are unique. I found out that our kids are pretty lucky. I found out that there are people who want to take this away from children. At our house it's what we thrive on. I wouldn't have it any other way.

You mean to tell me that this stuff actually has to be written, studied, analyzed and published? I mean. Come on. All you have to do is take five minutes and look at a child and you will figure out their genius within. I think it is a tragedy that public education has evolved to the point where they actually have to publish articles to tell "educators" that kids are naturally creative. They always have been. They always will be, until we put them in an environment where their creativity gets discouraged, squelched and punished.

As you (I am sure) know, Creativity is at the very top of the list for me.
If my children had only this in abundance, I would be content.
The rest is just... well... to help them along to be creative, maybe. :)
