Chasing Water Sources and Staying Cozy
As he was heading out the door, I mumbled something (I'm sure out of guilt that as a home school mom I'm never doing enough) about using some of his great geography, topography knowledge to make their trip ever so slightly educational. By the end of spring break, the kids had visited a total of 4 hydroelectric damns, seven rivers, and followed one river all the way to it's source.
Amelia kept track of different pine tree varieties and we learned a little about trout too. We ate and sat by the fire and jumped in the freezing river and hiked and drove Ralph's ranger. It was a most magnificent spring break and the kids got the geography lesson of a life time!
