I will never forget my last birthday. It was on July 18 2007, when I was going to be 18 years old. That day was very special and the best birthday that I have had, because there were many things that made my last birthday important for me.

That day I woke up at 6:00 am, because my parents sang me a special song and they gave me some presents, also my siblings and my parents gave my many hugs, then my cousin Gaby arrived to my house and she gave me a box of chocolates and a CD of my favorite singer, it was the most beautiful present and for this reason I was very happy that morning.

Well in the afternoon many of my friends called me and told me "CONGRATULATIONS! You are old, now you can go to the night club, drink beer and you can do many things that before you could not do, for example you can drive, vote, etc..." These words made me very happy, because now I could go out with my friends to night clubs and I could arrive late to my house. But I was a little sad, because my best friend did not call me and I thought that she had forgotten my birthday.

After at 6:00 pm I was with my parents when I received a message, that was from my best friend Vera and she told me "I have a surprise for you, I want to know if you can come to my house", and I told her "of course, I thought that you had forgotten my birthday", and she said "Did you believe it?, How if you know that you are my best friend and for this reason I want that you come to my house", I told her "yes, I will go, at what time? And she told me "at 8:00 pm I will pick you up, see you!, and I said "ok bye".

At night Vera picked me up in a beautiful car, it looked very nice, then when we arrived to her house, she opened the door, and all my friends were inside with many flowers and balloons, after all my friends gave me a big hug and they sang me a special and beautiful song that I liked and it was my favorite song. Finally, we ate cake, drunken beer, and we danced very much, really enjoyed it.

For these reasons I will always remember that day as the best birthday in my life and it has been the most important, because I was going to be 18 years old, also my family and my friends were very cute with me.

It goes on forever without any break or barrier. Thus education becomes an active and dynamic process. It is much more than schooling, memorizing or learning a prescribed syllabus. Therefore, J.S. Makenzie rightly says, "education is a process that goes on thought out life, and is promoted by almost every experience in life."

Thus the child goes on reconstructing experiences throughout the whole life. Therefore, goes on reconstructing experiences throughout the whole life.
