Today was so beautiful. On the way to get milk this morning, I couldn't resist stopping to let the kids play at a lake. Then later, while Miah was at American Heritage Girls, I took the other kids to the park. On the way home, the sky was alight with gorgeous colors. We made our own sparkle with glue and glitter. Then before bed, we went out to take pictures of the stars.


"We want to learn from the very best, right? So that we can imitate them in our own works. When we read a book, it should not be 'twaddle.' When we study art it should be the masters. When we learn science, or math or any other subject, it should be from an expert in that field. From these masters we learn about what man can achieve at his very best. And we are inspired to strive toward greatness ourselves.
I think of nature as God’s book. In it he has written all of literature, science, math, art and music. It contains ultimate wisdom, sublime beauty, and perfect logic and order. When we study nature, we are studying the work of the Master of all. We are God’s students and we can never cease to learn from Him by studying His masterpiece. "

  1. Rays of light, feathery frost, patches of ice, winter berries, and wandering children...even one in a tutu. My absolute favorite nature excursions are those on a whim. I pull over and my kids say, what are we doing? And I say, you want to go run up that big hill? Yay! Let's go on an adventure!
