I remember reading somewhere, when we first started homeschooling, that some "expert" advised noobs (you know, newbies) to just skip science for the first year or two, and add it in later.
We didn't take that advice.
For one thing, with three boys, science is the most fun of all.
But besides that... we look around and we're just plain curious. Why, oh why, is there so much variety?
We were watching an episode of Blue Planet last weekend with my parents and we were all absolutely astounded at the bizarre variety of life found at the depths of the ocean. And why?
He created it, Colossians 1:16, by Him and for Him... for His pleasure.
We sang it in Messiah, at Christmas.
And the glory of the Lord will be revealed, and all mankind together will see it.
And that's why we study science.
