Welcome! I am using this blog to share our family's homeschooling thoughts and experiences.

THIS SCHOOL YEAR (2018-2019): Our oldest child, EL, finished her formal education in May 2017. She remains at home due to her special needs, and continues to learn with us when she is able. JJ is in 10th grade this year. We intend to homeschool him through High School, and are using a variety of different curriculum choices to complete this goal.

Please feel free to follow along....

Russia, Easter & Safety Day

As we're nearing the end of Exploring Countries & Cultures, I have slowed down on my enthusiasm, but we are still learning.

Over the past couple of weeks, we studied the country of Russia. We didn't make or do anything real exciting, so I only have one picture to show. We tried a Russian recipe called Pirog, which is a type of Russian apple pie. It was okay. It turned out more like a cake than a pie. Road Runner liked it the best out of all of us. She loves cake.

During the week before Easter, we spent time going through the Resurrection Eggs. And, on Easter Sunday, we made Resurrection Rolls. Those were yummy!!!

Last Friday, we attended a Safety Day and the kids enjoyed learning about the ambulance, fire department, electrical safety, personal safety, etc. Here is Coyote being put into the back of an ambulance...

And, here, the kids got to meet Jesse Walker, a weatherman from WTWO in Terra Haute. They enjoyed talking with him and were also excited to see their picture on the evening news that night.

Other than that, I don't have much to share. Hopefully, next week, we will get more "into" our subjects again. We will be learning about Australia, and it looks like it will be fun!
