In other news, my #lovinghusband was able to fulfill a parenting goal today by accompanying the boy on his first visit to Timp Cave. Even better, they did it on the free on account of it being the 5th grade field trip. EVEN BETTER, I did not have be part of it. I've done that hike, back when I had energy, before kids. Said hike (and the possibility of plummeting to my death at nearly every point along the way) was terrifying enough then. I can't even contemplate doing it with kids. I'm not saying I suffer from a fear of heights, just a completely rational yet debilitating fear of falling from them.
So no, there be no precarious rope bridges across unfathomable gorges in the Andes (or any other mountain range) in my future. Nuh-uh.
Did y’all know there’s a garden in Powder Springs, Ga. that honors the history of the Cherokee??? It features the plants and trees that are culturally significant to them. The Cherokee Garden at Green Meadows Preserve. It’s actually on the Trail of Tears National Historic Trail.
I was invited to a Master Gardeners meeting tonight where Tony Harris spoke about native plants that the Cherokee people used and still use as food and medicine. He is a member of The Cherokee Nation and the Vice President of the Georgia chapter of the National Trail of Tears Association. He and his wife Carra started this garden. Currently there are more than 100 different varieties of plants at the garden. Tony knows over 600 plants that are significant to the Cherokee and hopes to have all of them represented at the garden someday.
Future plans include placards at each plant site with a QR code... The QR code will tell you what the plant is and how the Cherokee used it. I have to go there… I just have to!! ❤️🍃🌿🌼🌳🌽 #fieldtrip#herblife#nativespirit#ancestry#nativeplants#plantmedicine#trailoftears#thecherokeegarden @gypsysoulhomestead
There's nothing better than direct access to successful professionals in the industry you're studying. @PlattCollegeOfficial's Ontario Criminial Justice students went on a site visit to the Ontario Police Department where they toured the station and gained insightful knowledge about a career as a Police Officer. Thank you, Ontario PD! Did you know there are several educational paths in Criminal Justice studies? You can choose from public safety, corrections, forensics, California Guard Card certification, and more! Please visit https://bit.ly/2OzL8a9 or the link in our bio for more information!
Here is one of those cute storefronts inside the children’s museum. It’s either a dentist office or a doctors office. I’m not sure which. Emmett preferred reading the signs at the bank and climbing the mountain of tires.
In an effort to let this little one explore and be exposed to new things, I’ve created field trip Monday’s for us! Today was a splash pad near our house and Crew LOVED it, we will definitely be back. What activities are you loving with your child?
