I've been invited to post daily something that I am grateful for throughout the month of November. This is the 2010 Gratitude Challenge.
As my last "Official" Gratitude Challenge Post I want to shout out a "THANK YOU" to Brenda at Garden of Learning who invited me to do this throughout the month of November with her and others. Thanks Brenda, It's been fun. :)
I also want to shout out a thanks to the lesson someone out there taught me early on in this homeschooling adventure. I was encouraged to not over plan and there are days where I magnificently excel at that! I was encouraged to have a plan but to keep that plan loose and to leave empty spots that could be used by the incidental lessons that the Holy Spirit inserts for us. Lessons that might not be actualized if we are not open in our mind, our heart, our spirit and our schedule.
Yesterday I had absolutely NO plan to do a study on
the scientific observation of PINE TREES......
but the moment hit when my kids
were going to go do the lesson with or without me.
So like any good homeschooling blogging mom..... I grabbed the camera, took some shots and then sat them down beside me with our science journals! :)
I LOVE homeschooling when it just naturally happens
whether I've planned it or not! :)
