What’s in a name?


The girls and i spent  time last week in engaging conversation about a name for our homeschool.  We started  brainstorming fun ideas, laughing and  being silly. There are several good reasons we came up with, why now is a great time to pick a name. This discussion led us to spend time really studying the meaning of the words. Out came the dictionary, the thesaurus and a pad of paper. It wasn’t easy, although it sounds like it would be.  To us it was important that the name represents what we are doing here. When it finally hit us, we all agreed with enthusiasm. The words were right, we felt it.  Why do these simple words matter?  The give name to a place, a lifestyle and  a vision. They lend an air of purpose to the choice we have made.  What’s in a name? For us, our mission all wrapped up in three simple words. Three words that made these three girls satisfied.
