I had another wonderful weekend. I learned so much this weekend. Well, one thing in particular, which brings me to the title of my post. Foundations.
I posted the dictionary definition at the top, but there are so many other meanings to me. Everything that I think of begins with a strong foundation. When you build a house, the foundation is what anchors the completion of a safe home. When you start a painting, your foundation drives the outcome of the painting. When you are trying to be mobile, whether it be a baby learning to walk, or riding in the car, you must have a solid foundation. The need for a strong foundation is present in everything. I am thankful to have a strong foundation in everything around me. Have you ever thought about what you're standing on, both literally and figuratively?
**I will fill you in on my wonderful weekend later, just wanted to post something quick. Until then Scout and I (well, I am the only one working) are swamped at work!!**


  1. hey i voted you as a kreativ blogger. check out my last post!

  2. To say the truth I have not really though about it in that way. Of course, as an educator the only thing in mind in the foundation we give our kids in their early years, as we teach them new things.

  3. Foundation is the key! I'm glad you have a good base!

  4. So true about the foundation - without it, you can't do anything. Great post.
