THSC Arlington 2015 - program lookers via @sprittibee

It’s summer. Well, at least for most of us. We have maybe two weeks left of tidying up and tying loose homeschool ends and we are DONE with 11th grade for my teens, Kindergarten for the 6 year old, and Preschool for my littlest guy.

The Carmans at THSC

I had all these words floating around in my mind over the past few days… words that tried to somehow grasp at buttoning up the experience of THSC and presenting it neat-fit and tucked in.

I haven’t had a randomized post in quite some time and tonight I’m feeling more random than I have in ages. I thought I would tell you about a strange email I got today from someone wanting me to pack my family up and go to MEXICO. Crazy, right? Photo Credit: Erik Page Photography But […]

We went to the Houston Downtown Aquarium last year as one of the add-on field trips during THSC’s Woodlands Homeschool Convention. I love a good field trip; especially if they make it educational. This one was fantastic, because there was something for everyone – the adults, the teens, and the toddlers. My three year old […]
