Yesterday we went with another homeschooling family to a wonderful local spot with all sorts of nature and history.
We took a boat ride, saw a local legend’s homestead, worked with microscopes
and made new friends. The day was glorious, the children had their imaginations sparked and I shot my camera like a maniac.
My friend has a very thorough post here and here so instead of rewriting it, I will direct you to her to read all about it. I am working on a shutterfly book of our adventures. (Between the two of us we have enough photos for a small novella;-)
As we slowly made our way down the river observing osprey, alligators, Spanish moss, air plants and other natural inhabitants of our local area, I said a quiet prayer at how thankful I am that we live here. Get out there and see the world people…and please take a little one along with you…they will thank you one day 20 years from now. Trust me it is an entire practice in delayed gratification.
Grace and Peace to all those “wondering” at the world around them~
