So now, dear Mama, here is my challenge to you. Start small. Pencil in a time during the week for nature study with your child- whether 3months or 13 years old. Go for a walk around a park, visit a pond, find a local hiking trail or sit on your back porch with a cold lemonade and just "listen." Just be in nature with your child. Don't have an agenda at first. But be ready for that freshly blosomed flower or that grasshopper that jumps over the path! Stop & wonder over it. Linger if your child is interested. Your interest & enthusiam is contagious- remember...education is r-e-l-a-t-i-o-n-a-l at its core. Remember that excited, silly chemistry teacher you had- you didn't like chemistry but you loved the teacher & his joy over chemistry & so you learned something. So go out, and may Father guide us together as we grow in this "learned skill, this meditation, this way to meet with God who reveals so much about Himself through His creation."
