When we started out with our unschooling journey, we felt a little like knights in shining armor freeing ourselves from our own self-imposed shackles. Hence the name of the blog.

Sky is the biggest

Raghu told me today that "the sky" was the biggest thing in the whole world. And I agreed.. but only after i took a minute to digest what he had noticed and was expressing. He said it was bigger than the biggest dinasaur and biggest land mammal and the biggest whale etc... its amazing what kids notice despite living in a place where the horizon is invisible... it stays hidden by buildings and other city needs. But yet the child saw the expanse of the sky perhaps at the sea-side and remembered it while being surrounded by buildings and trains etc. and a tiny patch of sky overhead.
