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....

Summer Fun

On Mondays, Road Runner is joining a bunch of other homeschool girls for a class based on the American Girl doll, Molly. The class is called "Molly Mondays" and the girls are learning about the time frame that Molly lived in, which was during World War II. Road Runner is not a huge fan of dolls (dogs are her thing), but it is a good experience for her to sit and listen with the other girls, while taking part in the crafts and activities. This past Monday, they made Boston Brown Bread in tin cans and made fleece blankets to give away.

Coyote has had several baseball games so far. He seems to be improving a bit on his swings. I'm hoping he can at least hit the ball once or twice before the end of the season. :-)

Last week was Vacation Bible School at our church. It was a fun time, however, we were only able to take part in the first 3 days. On Thursday and Friday, we had doctor appointments to attend (Neurologist checkup for Coyote, and Endocrinologist checkup for me). They were 2 1/2 hours away, one on Thursday and one on Friday, so we spent the night in a hotel on Thursday night.

My husband was not able to come along, so this was a new experience for me and the kids, sleeping in a hotel without him. We were a bit disappointed that he couldn't join us, but we made the best of it and it all turned out well. In between appointments, we swam in the hotel pool and visited with Grandma (Great-Grandma to the kids)...

... And, we also met some friends at a nearby park. While there, we saw several sets of mother ducks with their ducklings. Grandma loves ducks, so this was a treat for her! And, the kids and I thought it was pretty neat, too.
