Field Trip Foto Friday: King Tut Exhibit

Back in December I took my kids to see the King Tut exhibit in Houston at the Museum of Fine Arts. It was educational, it fit the homeschool history time-period we’ve been stuck in like mummies for what seems like eternity, AND I happen to be a history and museum LOVER. OK, I’ll admit; it […]

My Foto Friday series is one of my favorite things to post about. I love field trips and I love taking pictures. We have been recording our field trips since I started blogging back in 2005… and I keep track of our homeschool records in my homeschool series post (which links to field trip lists […]

How the South Won the Civil War

The post with these photos is not telling any sort of story… just mental drool today, sorry. However… I thought I would share the pictures to give me something fun to do on vacation. Everyone seems to have instantly turned in to a vegetable. I can’t stand the sound of snoring or Star Wars video […]

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 […]

This Field Trip Foto Friday happens to be a day late. It is part of my FTFF series and was taken in the 2006-7 school year while we were studying frontiersmen, native American Indians and explorers (Lewis and Clark). My kids were in Third and Fourth grades and we took this field trip with some […]

What could be more fun than touring a turn of the century log cabin with a dog trot? Learning about the pearl industry and seeing how they made pearl buttons? Making your own butter? Seeing a makeshift diver’s tank and imagining yourself in the murky water of a swamp-laced river bottom? Those are some things […]

Field Trip Foto Friday: Meramec Caverns

Only sixty short minutes from the St. Louis Arch is the buried underground cave where Jessie James once hid from authorities. His ‘strong box’ safe (from the train robbery at Gadshill, Missouri) and a few of his rifles still remain in the cave. Even farther back in history, the Meramec Cave (nicknamed “America’s favorite cave”) […]
