This photo was taken six years ago. Not much has changed. We still live in New England. It's still cold here. We still light a fire almost every night in winter. Everyone still gathers around the hearth with their books or tablets. I have to admit that New England has its gifts. Living here is why we read so much and why we’ve discovered the joys of hot tea. It’s definitely why we study Latin. We laugh and say, "What else are we going to do?" I say I'd probably unschool if we lived in Florida, doing “nature study” on the beach everyday. As we move forward into another winter, instead of complaining about the lack of light and heat, may I be able to say and mean it when I say, “The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places.” Living here has shaped us and I believe that God is using this place to fulfill his purposes in our lives.
