Ok. This time I really am going to get caught up on my posts! I know I said that over a month ago, but I've been working on a big, big project, which I will share with you very soon. We're going on a three week vacation to Nevada and California, so I know there will be tons to share when I get back. So I'll post every other day until I get caught up.
Now to get you caught up on the past three months.....
We've had so much snow this winter! I'm usually a cold freak, as in I can't stand it, but with kids somehow it's different. They've really made me appreciate the art of bundling up and trudging through the snow.
A few weeks before Christmas we went to our favorite woods, and Steve pulled the kids through the snow. There was a tiny hill, but mostly he just had to use muscle power and pull on flat ground.
There was no one there that day. Actually, there usually arn't that many people when we visit the woods. It's wierd me even thinking this since I don't like the cold, but I've actually been thinking about visiting Antartica one day. Does anyone else think this is a cool idea, or is it just me?
We saw some deer tracks in the woods and, right before we left, saw a family of three deer running through the woods. The kids were very excited.
We also ran across this bird's nest on a fallen tree limb.
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.
