Wild Flowers!

The girls and I went on a hike Saturday at LBL for Kentucky wild flower identification. It was so wonderful. I am so happy when I can use God's palette as a classroom for my kids. Especially when someone else is doing the teaching and I am learning too. I have done more things wrong in parenting than I feel comfortable mentioning-but two of my big successes are that my kids love to learn and they love meeting new people. They especially enjoy making friends with grown-ups. (Sometimes, that is really awkward for me!!)

The funny thing is that it has been a bad weekend for getting along for them. Sibling rivalry has been at an all time high! However, for two hours, it was wonderful. They were little angels and there was not even a hint of a squabble. We hiked two miles and learned more than our brains will be able to retain.

I can't wait till our next LBL adventure. I am waiting for permission to put some of the pictures from this site on my blog. Be sure and go there to look at these photos, they are just amazing.

Love the flowers...but then you knew that already, didn't you? The palette is especially beautiful this year. Me thinks the Lord has outdone Himself with spring.

That sounds so fun, I would love to have someone else leading us and teaching us like that. We have a great nature center around here but I live in FL and it's not as pleasant to hike and roam around.

I love that we live so close to LBL and all the fun and education it provides! Way to utilize our resources. :)
