WELCOME!

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

THIS SCHOOL YEAR (2016-2017): We will be using a variety of different curriculum this year, with Notgrass' Uncle Sam and You as our main History, Bible and Literature focus. Our oldest, EL, is in 12th grade this year, but has special learning needs due to autism. JJ is our youngest, an active boy with Tourette Syndrome. He is in the 8th grade.

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.

Daddy and Coyote both taking a turn at the hatchet throw.

They each got to keep a shell as a souvenir.
