    What transpired with Ava is just one of the many things that I love about homeschooling. Surrounding your children with books leads to unexpected learning and exploring that takes place out of their natural curiosity and interest. When this happens, a love of learning is heightened and an eagerness to discover more.

    What is truly amazing to me is that you were able to recognize and act upon a wonderful teaching moment. And create a perfect lesson! I am in awe! Great post! Thanks for sharing it on NOBH!

    Hey Heidi! I enjoyed your blog! I always wanted to do fun crafty things with my kids when they were younger, but they usually didn’t want to do them! (I was greatly disappointed.) My kids just want to do their work and be finished with it. Sounds like you have fun!

    Fun!! We had an ant farm last year for the kids to enjoy watching them tunnel, etc. They sure are fun insects to watch!

    I think Ava would love an ant farm. Maybe I will look into getting one for her at some point.
