In honor of Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays…affectionately known as THE WEEKEND!!! I am starting my new series, The World is Our Playground.
While From Our House to Yours is dedicated to inviting you into our home and sharing some of the “around the house learning” that we do. And Speak Life is dedicated to sharing inspirational motivation to parents as we all just try and do the best job that we can educating these small humans that have been entrusted to us. Oh and then there’s Voices in my Head that spotlights the amazing, insightful, and inspirational voices that I run into in the blogging world. Today I will begin sharing our many adventures and experiences with all of you!
I hope the tone of my blog is that learning and education can take place anywhere and that as parents we have a responsibility to do as much, if not more to educate our children than any school, system or government.
With that being said, my husband and I love going, doing and being in different places, with different people, experiencing different things. It’s one of the things I first loved about him. When Carter came along our adventures for two expanded and it’s been great! In our son’s short two, almost three, years with us he has done more than most little people I know. From hiking, to jet skiing, to swimming in lakes, to taking short road trips to small towns and big plane trips to large cities and exploring new worlds, to trying new restaurants, to visiting farms and mountain sides, to sailing on the Gulf Coast….the kids done and seen quite a bit. While we will have to share the pictures with him when he’s older, the results have been rewarding to him, but us as parents as well. Our little guy travels like a champ. He loves getting up to go and stays two steps ahead in search of the next adventure. I love that we are creating this spirit of experience in him.
Children are naturally curious and if we expound on that by giving them opportunities to interact with life outside of the normal boundaries, the rewards for both of you are limitless.
I hope you enjoy this new series and that it inspires you to get out and learn by doing! Have fun!
Hands on learning doesn’t get any better than this…….
As our waterfall hike comes to an end………..
We head back towards the car…….thinking of our next adventure….
