“We are all meant to be naturalists, each in his own degree, and it is inexcusable to live in a world so full of the marvels of plant and animal life and to care for none of these things.” ~ Charlotte Mason Nature Study has always come so naturally to my children. They were playing outside in nature, collecting items, and exploring the world God created before we were ever doing any formal school or Science. I love how kids can marvel and appreciate nature in such an innocent and simple way. I love to share our love for nature and nature studies with everyone. I have written quite a few posts on the subject over the last few years!
