I've had so much fun writing this blog for 3 years now. It's allowed me to not only unleash my creative side, but to share my knowledge for the benefit of others, and become an advocate for causes that mean a lot to me.
I've been meaning to take some pictures when I go into Manhattan, but somehow, I just keep leaving my camera at home! The only post I've written that relates to New York City was called Connecting the Dots of Lifelong Learning, which was inspired by the piecing together of a puzzle of Times Square.
Since many of us may be looking for ways to keep our children busy during their time off from school this month, I figured it was a good time to share Sandra Foyt's Manhattan adventures.
“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder without any such gift from the fairies, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in” ~Rachel Carson
It's going to be a light month here at Moms Inspire Learning, as I'm giving myself an online spring break. There won't be many full length posts, but instead some quotes, article links, and flashbacks to previous April posts.
Today, I have a thought-provoking quote and an article.
Oh, to be barefoot at the beach right now! This photo takes me back to our summer vacation last year. It was late in the day, and we were heading back to the hotel to get ready for dinner.
It was a HOT summer last year, so I guess it's fitting that it's been an extremely cold and snowy winter so far. I'm sure a lot of people are dreaming of a day on the beach these days. Hopefully, this photo will warm you up. If not, here's one that might!
Well, if you've been reading this blog for a long time, you know that I love to take photos. With digital cameras these days, even amateurs like me can take some pretty extraordinary ones once in a while.
I've lived near the ocean for most of my life, and it's still the place I head to first when I need either a reality check or inspiration. When I hear the crashing of those waves, it reminds me that I'm just one tiny dot in the circle of life.
And yet, every single choice I make affects the planet.
