Field Trips this Summer

Me and my little boy have been on a few trips this summer.  All of them day trips and mostly free.  Exploring is what we do the best.  He has such a since of freedom in the great outdoors.  The bible tells us to raise them in the way they should go. So I am hoping that I will be able to do that. His father and I are sure trying our best to accomplish this by showing him different things around us and having him to appreciate all that God has to offer.  Here are a few pictures of the day trips this summer.

Crabtree Falls in Mitchell County, NC

The falls here are beautiful. The hike down to the falls, depending on which way you go in to them will determine your hike.  There is two trails that lead down to the falls.  One of the trails is rocky and not so flat, but its always been the best one for us to travel. The other trail is flat until you come to the end of it and then its a downward hike off the side of the mountain, with not much of a trail.  We had a great day and enjoyed the trail and waterfall.

 Grandfather Mountain in NC

This is not a free trip but is was to me because of group rates and homeschooling.  So glad we are blessed that way. Anyways, this is a beautiful place to visit.  The views are amazing as you can see from the pictures. The bridge you see here is one mile high in the air.  Scary, yes it is scary to cross it but worth it.

One of the views  from the mountain.  Isn't it gorgeous? 

This is a tree cyst, after they took it off one of the trees on the mountain and cleaned it up this is what it looked like inside.  I thought it was beautiful.

So there you have it, just a couple of the trips that we have taken this summer.  It may not look like much to some but to us, it was a lot.  Enjoy what the Lord has for you in each and every day. I urge you to get out and enjoy his beauty that is around you.  You'll be surprised in what you ay discover.

My prayer is that you will be challenged to get out and explore the world around you and enjoy time with your family as long as you have it.
