Jake and Aaron Exploring fossils at the Falls of the Ohio

Me and my family were able to go to the Falls of the Ohio last weekend. If you have never been it is a great field trip for a science class or for a family to explore fossils together. My husband is a bit of scientist, he is an agronomist. My children all have that science gene in their bodies. They love to explore and ask tons of questions. When they ask me about science I say ask dad. Then I always follow that with if you want to know about God, faith, religion, literature, communication, relationships or life come to me!

My husband loves days like this when we all get out together and just explore. They found tons of fossils that they truly took the time to examine together. He is a great science teacher to our children. He makes it fun and interesting.

That is one of the most awesome parts of having a mom and a dad. ¬†We complement each other. Each of us gives something to our children that the other one gives differently. They get two perspectives from the same set of values and unconditional love. Parents help to shape their children’s views, curiosity and mindsets. Take the time to nurture your children’s education whether it is through helping them with homework, counting the stars at night or exploring fossils together, the most important elements are that you are teaching them and spending time together.
