fabulous homeschool “investment”

September 24, 2010

maddie has been wanting a microscope since we started homeschooling last year. i put it off; the timing was never right, financially, when it came up.

this year, i decided to go for it and get one – a good one.  and i am SO glad that i did!

what a gift, to be able to look closely at GOD’s creation; to see the beautiful, infinitely small details hidden within everything around us. and what a gift for my daughter, who is a very visual learner, to see such treasures!

our first day with the microscope was spent having her read all the instructions; learn all the parts and functions as well as the care of this new piece of equipment. since then, we’ve looked at at least 2 “specimens” each day, and she records her observations in her science journal.

good stuff!

((ps, we are headed out of town for a long weekend at yachats, a lovely coastal resort town, to tuck away in our little cabin while enjoying family and the beauty of GOD’s creation. back next week!))

    SO cool!!!
    We have a microscope and a telescope that we have to figure out how to clean… we’ll see. I have a ton of cabbage moths and their caterpillars you can come pick up for your specimens 😉
