Oh to be a geologist
A recent outing to a homeschooling family's home was a huge success. The family have over three acres but the best thing ever (according to Pernella & Charlie) was the dry creek bed at the bottom of the garden. (In the wet season this is a deep flowing creek).
The children were sent down to gather a few rocks to bring back to the house to paint. After quickly painting a rock, my two went back to the creek bed to spend more time examining rocks, looking for cystals and eventually making there way back up the hill with hands and pockets full of rocks to take home.
