A few weeks ago we had the chance to get away for the weekend -- not far, but enough to feel that we were *away.*
Spending so much time together was such a treat -- and showing our littles new places is such a delight. They're at that age where their curiosity is boundless (and so is their energy!)
Add to that crisp temperatures and plenty of natural beauty.
As I think more about "formal" home education (Little Man is almost four, after all), I've found myself realizing just how much there is to be learned informally. Every walk, every outing is an opportunity to share something with my children -- the name of a flower, the many uses for trees, the glory of God's beautiful creation. I knew that it would be this way, but knowing is different than experiencing.
I feel like I'm rediscovering the wonder of life itself as I tell and explain and watch their minds blossom. And I feel like that's a wonderful, wonderful thing.
