LEARNING FROM THE CHILDREN



I have learned quite a bit from the children. 

Did you know you can make cool whistling *music* with an acorn cap? 
You hold it like this . . .
and blow ! It's really COOL!


And did you know you can very easily start fire with the sun, a magnifying glass and dried leaves? I never thought it was so easy.





Did you know the best and long lasting campfires start with a bed of kindling,hay,and logs set in teepee fashion in the stonework they built themselves ?




Did you know Children experience immense joy in having the TIME. . . 


                to throw rocks into the water. . . 

to observe the pond



 to climb trees


and to explore all parts of the land?



Did you know children have a very special connection, showing love and reverence for every being they touch, no matter how big or how small?







It is so very precious to be with them

We learn from every experience we have, all of us.
But the children have enriched my world beyond measure.



What have you learned from a child lately ?

happy day!
