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....

Making A Milky Way (from CTG Week 15)

Science this past week lead us into learning about the Solar System and the Milky Way Galaxy. We watched several different videos about these things on You Tube (there are MANY to choose from!) Some of the videos included Pluto as a planet. Others have removed Pluto, saying it is no longer classified as a planet, but is now considered a dwarf planet. I don't know what I think about it all just yet, but the kids seem to think Pluto should still be included. Hmmm.

We also made our own "milky way" by pouring a little bit of milk into a spinning cup of coffee.

Here are a couple of pictures to share. I had a short video to show you also, but I tried uploading it and, 3 hours later, it was still not done loading! So, I gave up. Anyway, here are the pictures...
