I love when Aidyn takes the initiative to learn on his own. Last night Aidyn asked to watch one of his Geo Kids videos. We have a set of adorable kid-friendly National Geographic videos, and Aidyn selected the Metamorphosis video. In his bed together, we watched the antics of animals and talked about the big change. He remembers when we watched the caterpillar to butterfly cycle last year, but he also relearned that other animals go through changes as well. I love hearing him identify animals that I assumed he didn't know the names of such as sea otters and mosquitoes. I also love how inquisitive he is and his flood of why questions.
Even when we do not formally plan subjects out, education can't help but leak in!
