Simple Wonderment ~ Day 15

Photobucket

So yesterday we went on a bit of a road trip down to the coast (a bit like the photo above). It was somewhat bleak and overcast outside and after awhile sightseeing out the window of one scene to another began to meld together and that's when the questions began about anything and everything really. We somehow got onto the topic of The "Bermoota" Triangle which then included a pronunciation and spelling lesson. From there it went to other unsolved mysteries of the world including;

The Pyramids

Stonehenge

I love all of this. It's what makes life interesting don't you think? That it isn't just always weetbix in the morning, getting ready and go to work, come home, have dinner and go to bed to do it all over again. Expand our minds I say, sit around a camp fire and tell ghost stories, read read read, stare at the stars, learn the constellations and wonder if that was a shooting star or space junk re-entering the atmosphere (or just wish upon it). Life is NOT boring. There is so much to learn and be EXCITED about and I think that is one thing great about kids always wanting to soak up this information....it is just simple wonderment.
