Life Science

When we home schooled our daughters one of my main goals for them was to fall in love with learning. So it is with great joy that I watch Carrie home school her children and see them going out into nature to explore and learn from their surroundings. Although the boys are intrigued with finding different things outside than their sister would find; bugs verses flowers etc, it is so fun to watch them learn. We are blessed to be able to be in the mountains within an hour and as they get older I know there will be hiking, skiing and wonderful adventures. This summer they began a Gratitude Journal and will often draw and write about different things in nature. Seeing children learn and the excitement in their eyes as they discover new things is amazing. I am so thankful that they can be at home where the creativity is actively nurtured.


  1. I love those autumn photos you're showing off. I would've loved to have homeschooled my 3, my dh isn't into it but they're doing brilliantly in public school anyway :-)
    Hope you're doing ok there.

  2. Thank you for the kind words on my post regarding my daughter. I did have a long heart to heart talk with her a little while ago. She is going to be doing more life skills the next coming weeks. Hopefully it will help. Thank you again.

  3. I relate to this post too. My family has "thankful journals." And we love to get out and explore nature. It's one of God's gifts to people. Beauty!
