Imparting a classical education at home. Check out the Edwards Academy.

Psalm 78
. . . we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. .
so the next generation would know them . . . and they in turn would tell their children.
Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.

Memorial Day, 2008

Three years later, our trip to Tallgrass Prairie Preserve:

Cresting the hill and seeing the big barn at the old ranch in the Flint Hills
Earning Junior Ranger badges
Running around a 130 year old Kansas limestone barn
Picnicking in the corner of the barn (lightning threatened)
Hiking a muddy mile to the one-room-schoolhouse
Posing for mom's camera
Running through the prairie trail--more mud!
Dashing around the grounds of the 1880s ranch house (and pretending it is Cair Paravel)
Driving to a nearby rural community to look for a playground and finding an amazing static display of a tank and helicopter
Reading the plaque of veteran's names
Finding another small town for a picnic dinner of cold chicken and crisp apples
Driving into Wichita as severe storms rolled in
Amazing memories with cousins, Aunt J., Aunt L. and Uncle D., and Grandma and Grandpa.
