I always learn something from my kids when we go out for a hike. Yesterday was no different.
I learned the succinct method in which the earth was formed and how life came about. I forget how the topic came up, but my son explained things nicely:
"It used to be just ocean, then there was a bunch of earthquakes, and then came the mountains." That's it. Simple yet elegant.
Hikes in our family are edumicational.
