Mercer Arboretum

Today we headed to the Mercer Arboretum. We had never been before, and we were blown away with how beautiful it was. This went along perfectly since our Biology study is on plant reproduction right now. The Bees, Butterflies and Birds were all over, and the kiddos could watch cross pollination right in front of them. God's creation is so beautiful. The kids were commenting that this could be like what the Garden of Eden looked like. It was truly breathtaking. Love to study God's beautiful Creation, it is such a gift.
We are on day 51 of our new school year. The boys are enjoying our American History Study with Beautiful Feet and the girls are Loving doing Before Five in a Row. And our Christian Kids Explore Biology takes us on all types of adventures outside to make it come alive to them, like today.

Beautiful day out!!! Love the photos. Kids look like they had a ball! I knew you must have had a full day when I didn't hear from you. And counting your days like a boss. I have no idea where one hear stops and the other starts. Lol xoxoxo
