On the way back from our Missouri trip, when we stopped in the Cracker Barrel for dinner, we bought a pretend dinosaur egg. It was the kind where you place the egg in water and within 48 hours it will hatch and become a baby dinosaur (in our case a Stegosaurus.) I was really surprised at how Alexa especially was so excited about wanting to check the egg so much to see how much more the egg had cracked open. Well, 60 hours later and still not hatched all the way, I helped the egg along and our baby dino was born.
Here's Alexa making dinosaur footprints in the play dough.
What if you could grow up learning the things you were interested in? What if you grew up having everyday adventures that you helped design? What if your adventures lead you to an amazing world of new experiences, ideas and creativity?
Welcome to the adventures of two children growing up living and learning this way. Join me as I record our adventures, occassional philosophical asides on the joy of interest-led learning, and the eclectic resources we discover along the way.
