We chose to go to a state park not too far from us. We packed snacks, water and our lunch. We stopped often and looked at the leaves and trees and flowers. My husband even had us do a few minutes of silent walking so we could hear the sounds of the forests and figure out what we heard - of course, our 10 month old did not get the memo she continued to babble on.
The day was beyond beautiful and the weather was so mild.
We found some tracks. We saw turtles. We stepped over lots of bees and they didn't bother us. We rolled down hills. We spotted beaver teeth marks on trees. We ate lunch. We played on the playground. We came home and looked up the flowers we saw. We spent time together, outside, admiring God's amazing handiwork.
I'd call that a success. Best.school.ever.
