"Children do not need to be made to learn about the world, or shown how. They want to, and they know how." -John Holt

Shutter speed adventures at Wildcat Falls Park!

This may or most likely will not amuse you, but I have to explain that when Rich came home from his morning out with the kids and my camera, I noticed it was set was on "S" (meaning shutter speed priority) and the ISO was at blazing 1000. Seriously, this really made me chuckle.

I guess that makes me a camera snob but we all knew that was coming...

On to the adventures!
Berry picking and eating...
Rapids and waterfalls...
Bouldering (with a stuffed cat in her left hand no less!)...Bug collecting...Softest-moss-ever admiring...And fence perching (love Munchie's leg position here)...All photos coutesy of Daddy who should stick to automatic. ;) (Oops. Did I just say that out loud?)

No comments:

"By nature people are learning animals. Birds fly; fish swim; humans think and learn. Therefore, we do not need to motivate children into learning by wheedling, bribing, or bullying. We do not need to keep picking away at their minds to make sure they are learning. What we need to do - and all we need to do - is to give children as much help and guidance as they need and ask for, listen respectfully when they feel like talking, and then get out of the way. We can trust them to do the rest."
John Holt
"In the end, the secret to learning is so simple: Think only about whatever you love. Follow it, do it, dream about it...and it will hit you: learning was there all the time, happening by itself." -Grace Llewellyn
"What we want to see is the child in pursuit of knowledge, not knowledge in pursuit of the child."
George Bernard Shaw
Real, natural learning is in the living. It's in the observing, the questioning, the examining, the pondering, the analyzing, the watching, the reading, the DO-ing, the living, the breathing, the loving, the JOY. It's in the joy. ~Anne Ohman
"How could youth better learn to live than by at once trying the experiment of living?" -Henry D. Thoreau
