This week I wrote over about Bible Based Homeschooling about the lessons we learned through Creation:
“Yesterday we took a spontaneous trip to the shore for a picnic. It was a rare 84 degree in October, so in the morning I told the kids if they finished their work, we would could take a trip to the beach for lunch and exploring. (I never saw them work so diligently!
We had a great afternoon. We ate lunch and then the kids had fun just exploring in the water. When we arrived it was low tide, and there were millions of little sand crabs. They had a blast digging in the sand and watching as the little critters tried to bury themselves back into the sand. At first we didn’t know what they were, but then we looked it up on my phone and we learned all about them right there on the beach.
Then as they day went on, the tide started getting higher and higher. Where we once sat on our chairs, became completely covered in water. What a great opportunity to talk about the tides and the moon, and SO much more.
These are the lessons I love. They are real. We experience them. They are not just words in a book, but things we feel and see and hear.”
