For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

Outside Schooling

We took advantage of the gorgeous weather we had last week. We spent a lot of time outdoors. Schooling can be plain ol' fun when you are outside. The kids each found spots and went to work ,each on their independent assignments. We heard the birds chirping and felt the cool breeze, and we were all happy. Our driveway makes an excellent teaching tool, and we have such fun in taking spelling test and having multiplication drills on our "gianourmous"(yes, I did make that word up) chalkboard. Then we were off on a nature walk... we didn't go far, just around our property. We were thrilled to find many types of plants, many varieties of birds (singing for our benefit), lots of "creepy crawlies", lots of spider webs, and a variety of lovely things. If you have never schooled outside, you should try it. It makes for a very special day.
