Do you love to learn? I sure do. I try to teach my children that every moment is an opportunity to learn. I think we are always learning! We can learn anywhere too, in our comfy chair, in a car, on a plane, on a bus, during a walk, swim, horse ride, at the park, in church… wherever it may be were always learning.
My day was a little full while trying to catch up from our camping trip… where we learned about turkey when we had the privilege of seeing 18 or so, more about our latest fascination… ELK while we heard them gathering near the watering tank we camped near, we learned about different species of tree’s, oak, juniper, pine, cedar and we learned about what animals eat off of these trees. We learned about fires as we drove the highway where they were in the progress of a control burn, we could see flames, and smouldering areas, the Forest Service personnel hard at work. We were able to put so much into action while we just took the time to learn about our surroundings. No, it wasn’t a formal sit down school lesson, it was just appreciating all of God’s works in the beautiful outdoors. While having the privilege of sunshine and fresh air, and sharing in great memorable conversations with our children.
Do you take every moment to talk to your kids? You may just be surprised that you are teaching while they ask questions. It’s really a magical moment.
