I'm a redeemed child of God and the momma to four vivacious daughters. I'm passionate about finding hidden blessings in the trials of life, living it out in an honest and open way, while encouraging those around me to believe in better.


science class :: nature’s course

I mean no disrespect to Mr. E {Piper’s second grade teacher} … in fact, I’ll let you be the judge.

Which science materials would you have used?

His …

Or ours …

CJ loves to take the girls out snorkeling … and quite honestly, I can’t believe they love it so much too.  They have no fear.

I tried to get a wide shot, so you could see the wide open waters that they snorkel in.  They go without an actual snorkel or fins … they just swim.

I remember the first time we went snorkeling with the girls … we were in Costa Rica on a tour thing with the World Wildlife Fund … Wynter was probably a fresh 3 years old?  She had her arm floaties and mask and couldn’t have been braver.  And they haven’t stopped since!

It’s cute watching them take turns riding on CJ’s back.  Then they’ll dive under for something.  They know all kinds of fish by name, sea life, etc.

I think my favorite memory will be seeing Wynter’s little bottom and legs go under … to hear her come back up shouting “brain coral.”

Exhibit below:

Told ya they were brave.

CJ found these awesome rafts with a window on them.  Glass bottom raft? ;)

Anyway, I didn’t bring my camera with on the particular day that Hunter decided to try “snorkeling” too.  I usually stay on the boat with her while the girls snorkel.

The photo below was taken of her just a few feet off the beach.

Anyway.  On this particular day, we found a great spot and she decided to try it.  We had brought the raft with and she wanted to go on that.  So she’s out for a bit, then yells for her mask.  We’re all excited thinking she’s going in!

She puts her mask on …

And sits back on top of her raft … with the mask on … looking through the glass window.

My heart be still.

Verdict please … our science class … or his?

    when you live in a place long enough, you stop thinking of what to do and just soak it up. my absolute favorite photo is the one of your daughter with the lizard on her head. it is absolutely priceless! what fun. isn’t it a thrill to take photos, here and there, for sheer fun only!
