The Outdoor Classroom

We had the privilege of camping at Glacier National Park all last week. It was stunning and I have tons of pictures to sort through to share with you, but I’m just going to post this one today, because it’s so neat.

The Outdoor Classroom!! -- Glacier National Park

We owe a thank you to a fellow hiker who loaned us this chair that he had hauled up the mountain with him. I may make it my banner (when I have time).

"While the Bible should hold the first place in the education of children and youth, the book of nature is next in importance. God’s created works testify to His love and power. He has called the world into being, with all that it contains. God is a lover of the beautiful; and in the world which He has fitted up for us He has not only given us everything necessary for our comfort, but He has filled the heavens and the earth with beauty. We see His love and care in the rich fields of autumn, and His smile in the glad sunshine. His hand has made the castle-like rocks and the towering mountains. The lofty trees grow at His command; He has spread earth’s green velvet carpet and dotted it with shrubs and flowers." Ellen White, Counsels to Parents, Teachers and Students.

P.S. If you want a preview of our pictures from Glacier that I’ve started uploading, click on this link.

    Seriously ~ have you thought about turning your pics into postcards or cards? They are just beautiful * it's obvious God has given you the talent of capturing His glorious creation in photography. What a fun pic of your daughter * a great picture to represent homeschoolers!!! wink! Blessings, EMichelle

    The picture is amazing and I love the quote. Your daughter is beautiful too.

    The outdoor classroom is my favorite classroom. My husband just bought us a picnic table so we can do even more outside. I can't wait until he's finished painting it!
