Field Trip Foto Friday: The Fire Station

Fire Station Field Trip

It’s been a while since I did my field trip series here. It started back in 2005 with my big kids when they were in their field trip crazy days, and I have done field trip reviews on and off for years… but with my older two in high school and the little guys too […]

Bluebonnet Time (every Texas spring)

In case you haven’t noticed yet, I’m a native Texan… and we Texans have a little crush on our state. Especially lovely are the things we think make Texas wonderful: like bluebonnets, which happen to be the state flower. This year’s bluebonnets were THICK, y’all. Maybe it was the drought last year?

I know I’ve shared quite a few of our Pinnacle Mountain adventures already (see links below)… but this one was unique. Instead of spending all of our time going up the mountain, we also took the to the trails and visited the swampy forest surrounding the base of the Ozark foothill. We took this field […]

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 […]
