World Water Day

waterGenesis 1:9-10

“9 And God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.” And it was so. 10 God called the dry ground “land,” and the gathered waters he called “seas.” And God saw that it was good.”

With today being World Water Day, our homeschooling support group toured our local Coast Guard Headquarters.  The kids found it interesting that the Coast Guard is both military and police of our ocean coasts and rivers ways.  C Gc g 7c g 3c g 5Our group was so large that we had to split into a big kid group and a young kid group.  I stayed with the Z7 and the younger ones.  Our guide was great with them.  Touching some equipment  and trying on gear was ALLOWED!  The kids even got souvenirs to take home.

If you live near the coast, or like us, live near riverways,  you should see about a Coast Guard Headquarters field trip.  These are some wonderful people.  I do not think I realized how much they do for us.
