Exploring creation with your kids doesn't have to be complicated. You don't have to track through the jungles or scale Mt Everest to be an explorer.
Everyday exploration can be an exciting experience for the whole family. All you need is a keen eye and a good attitude!

We do a lot of different nature & wildlife activities. One of the best things we've incorporated into our homeschool nature studies - is art. It's fun and interesting. It helps the boys remember what they have seen. It reinforces what they have learned either out in the field or in studies & reading afterward.
Incorporating art into nature studies adds another layer of depth to adventures outdoors. Art can…Continue

We had a close encounter with a gopher tortoise this week! He actually got IN the house. He's been coming up onto our porch and scratching at the back door - just like the dog does - to let us know he wants in.
When I stepped out to take his picture - I expected him to shy away into his shell.
But, he's just not the shy type! He ran straight for me - and right into the house. I could hardly get out of…Continue

We've been out and about exploring God's Creation the past couple of days. We've had run ins with turtles (well, gopher tortoise) and I was up all night defending my children from a rogue raccoon, who was determined to get into our tent!
Not to worry, we made it through the experience unharmed, and so did he. It can be dangerous when dealing with an animal who has lost its fear of humans. Well, when they have claws and teeth, anyway. Teaching our children to…Continue
