I used to create a photo or graphic calendar each month for the Homeschool Post and I really enjoyed it. I decided this month – hey, why not offer it here at my own site? I need something new for my laptop anyway. I hope you like what I’ve come up with for June. Sadly, […]

Using Isis to Pay on the Go

I live in my car. I can drive figure-eight spaghetti-bowl asphalt ribbons around the proverbial soccer mom. Trust me. Texas sized BIG. Just like my gas bill each month. Think SUV, six-people deep… plus backpacks full of heavy books and fossilized french fries under every seat. So, I mentioned a while back that I was trying out […]

Field Trip Foto Friday: Hike and Trails

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 […]

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?

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”) […]

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 […]

The Longest Field Trip…. continued….

These are some of the photos from Day 4 of our extended Robotics “field trip” that we took from Texas to Michigan and back. I know it is late in coming, but I figured I would dish it out on a Friday when I’m supposed to be doing “Field Trip Foto Friday” anyway. If you […]
