This is such a great blog post. I just re-read it today. This pretty much sums up why we wanted our kids to go to SVS as little kids. (Our 9-year-old is in his 6th year already… he started when he was 4.) Some people might think that SVS is more useful as kids get older. But I think that is quite mistaken and this blog post captures this very well.
