Homeschool High Schoolers Learning to Meet Deadlines

8107147949_62238297fe

I have quite the gap between my oldest and youngest homeschool ‘student’ (my youngers are preschoolers), and we spent quite a few years on Unit Studies, Charlotte Mason, and an eclectic brand of Accidental Unschooling after the little ones came along unexpectedly. And so, here at the bee-hive, we have not had as many deadlines […]

The last time we studied the Medieval Times, my kids were in the very beginning of Elementary. Those days were so precious. I look back on them and shake my head at how fast these ‘students’ of mine have grown up into mature young people. We had such fun doing hands-on things like crafts and […]

Over a year ago, my friend Angela sent me some flatties (flat laminated images of their family members inspired by Flat Stanley) to take a little Texas adventure with our crew. We had high hopes of taking them to the Capitol Building, the Texas History Museum, the Texas-shaped corn maze in Marble Falls at Sweet […]

Time for a Field Trip Foto Friday again. This field trip was during our Pioneer and Frontiersmen unit while we were living in Arkansas (which happens to get much more of a seasonal show in the fall than Texas does). My children were ages 7 and 9 – and in grades 3 and 4. This […]

It is that time of year again… time for the long shadows of fall, the golden evenings, the brisk sweater weather, and pumpkins everywhere. I thought it would be fitting to skip down memory lane this morning before we head out to the harvest field trip we are about to go on… and share with […]

The photos in this post were borrowed from the Arkansas Natural State Expo Website. I was down town in Little Rock on the day of the fair and we happened to see the sidewalk signs. I couldn’t pass up a field trip, so we sauntered in to check it out. We attended the FIRST annual […]

Day 5 of The Longest Field Trip: St. Louis, MO

I’m finally getting the photos from the ‘longest field trip’ we took in April up. There’s just no excuse other than life itself for how behind I am. I can’t believe it has been this long since we drove up to Michigan. Seems like yesterday. It is nice having a ton of photos to remember […]
