WELCOME!

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....

Outdoors Unlimited

Last Saturday morning, we went as a family to a local State park where they had a FREE program going on called Outdoors Unlimited. It is a Christian-based organization that gives kids a chance to aim at targets with a gun, a bow & arrow, a hatchet, and a slingshot. They also had fishing, turkey calling, and a free lunch. It was a fun family event, despite the horrendous heat, and the chigger bites we came home with! I think Coyote enjoyed this event the most out of all of us but, surprisingly, Road Runner really enjoyed shooting the guns (as long as she had her earplugs in during the shooting)! Here are a few pictures to share...

Coyote is shooting a muzzle loader at a target across the pond.

Daddy helped Road Runner line up her gun to the target,
then she pulled the trigger.

They each got to keep a shell as a souvenir.
