"Let Children Be"

There are times in my Homeschooling adventure that I feel like I have to defend what I do.  One of those areas is when I choose to let my children play.  There have been days when the weather is fantastic and the boys go outside and play for hours; or the car rugs spread across the living room cars and they play for hours; or the blocks come out and they create houses and cars and castles.  I have personally felt that when those moments are happening I need to "let them be".  They are learning and they are only preschooler's.  Yes, I have goals to accomplish and lessons they need to learn but a huge part of a child's learning comes from doing. 

It felt . . .good . . .to read this post over at  The Better Mom about this exact topic - "Learning to Let Children Be".
