"If Psalm 1 is to be believed, we must not allow our children to stand, sit or walk with those who deny biblical truth and morality. Instead, we must place them in situations that will aid them in meditating on the law of the Lord 'day and night.' Surely this involves how and where they are to be educated." — Voddie T. Baucham Jr.

Our Tree

So today we had our first nature "walk". I think I'm just going to focus on developing Janelle's observation. Just getting her to be aware of the natural things around her and how they change with the seasons. I got the idea from Nature for the Very Young. It's a great book with activities for preschool aged kids. The book suggested having one designated area that you visit all year and observe the seasonal changes. So I decided that we would adopt a tree near the playground at the park. That should be simple enough for her. We'll visit our tree every couple of weeks or so and see how it's changed. We'll also take account of the weather and temperture. We're going to keep all of this in a journal that we can look back on at the end of the year. So here is the tree that Janelle picked to be her tree.
