One With Nature


Every year we enjoy growing flowers and vegetables. Last week we bought a little greenhouse to enjoy the process of the seeds sprouting and flowers blooming inside. Once the snow melts they will be ready to plant outside to watch them thrive in one of our gardens.

I love to create a life where our children have an environment rich with activities and projects all around them. Growing flowers is one of the many projects we have going right now. Every morning we wake up to check out how much the seeds have grown.
I love this about our life... Being part of the natural rhythms of the seasons, ever changing, ebbing and flowing and growing... Nothing is more connected to nature, and more joyful for me than to give my family a home where there is always something to learn from and enjoy.

I'm so jealous that someone with snow 6 months out of the year can garden so well, while I live in a part of the country where it's warm all year round, and I always mess up in gardening. Great job!

How cool is that! My son and I just planted our herb and vegetable container garden last week. He loves being able to go out each day to see how much they have grown. This is one of the favorite parts of unschooling! Thanks for sharing!
