springing gas pipeline marker
From Shannon: “Kids are learning all the time, a fact my daughter constantly reminds me of. On our walks in the woods near our house, we pass by this gas pipeline marker. At first, she just hugged it and said, ‘This is my best friend!’ But lately she has been experimenting with physics and seeing how far and fast she can make it spring back and forth. Of all the ways to teach about tensile strength and oscillation, this was not one that had ever occurred to me.”
Shannon blogs at Pineapples & Artichokes.

counting the egg carton
Momma Jorje isn’t sure WHAT Sasha was learning here, but it was surely something!

sage enjoying the dirt
From Jade: “This is Sage Autumn at 18 months last summer on one of our outings. We encourage her to use all of her senses to learn about her surroundings and never hold her back from exploring, even if it involves sitting and looking at a leaf for an hour or, as this picture demonstrates, getting really dirty! After this picture was taken she then proceeded to ‘build up her immune system’ … aka starting eating the dirt!”
