It's fascinating to imagine how very different the world used to be. I found some fossils while camping in landlocked Montana, too.

I think learning sticks so much better when you can really experience what you are learning. And has alot to do with learning styles.

This is very cool! What a fun, educational day for your girls. You are such a great mom.

BTW: Just wanted to let you know that I nominated you for a watermelon award for your wonderful blog. I hope that you don't mind.

It's up to you if you want to pass it on. The rules are on my blog.
Thank you for inspiring us with your happy blog!

Exactly! All a child needs is an engaged parent and access to the world around them. Kudos to you for providing both!

I could not agree with you more!
Earthschooling... I like that!
My kids (and I!) would love to find a fossil site like this, what a wonderful experience!

Thank you everyone for visiting and leaving comments :) I wish I could arrange a field trip for us all to go fossil hunting! My kids want to go again now. Anyone near Minneapolis? It was only about 1.45 hours from MN.
