Nature study builds into our children something wonderful. Something that cannot be attained through any other means. It instills a spirit of freedom and a sense of awe. A depth of understanding of God’s beautiful creation. And a curiosity that stays with our children their entire lives. The more time they spend outdoors exploring nature—freely and without structure—the happier their childhood memories will be. What a precious and invaluable gift to give our children! My son recently told me he feels sorry for the kids in his college classes who spent their entire childhood sitting in a school classroom. He […]

Just focus on the basics until you get your feet wet. After you get a handle on the three R’s—Reading, wRiting and aRithmetic —launch into other fun activities and extra curricular classes/courses.
