There are many benefits to home educating and one of them is having the time & freedom to explore and learn! Right now the children are watching men cut down trees in our neighbor's yard. (Don't worry- they are a safe distance away!) The children are having a blast!
One man is climbing the tall pines as they sway a bit. He carries a large chainsaw & is climbing with the aid of spiked boots and ropes. This looks very cool to the children! After cutting the trees, the men are chopping them up in a machine. Looks like we will have to make a library trip to learn about all of this, but for now I'm so thankful that they can watch.
This has also given us an opportunity to talk about being good stewards of our properties.
