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....

My Daughter's Drawing of Hoops & YoYo

About a month ago, I mentioned the Hoops & YoYo Video Maker that my kids enjoyed playing with on the computer. Since then, Road Runner began to draw the Hoops & YoYo characters. (Drawing is one of her favorite things to do). Here is one of the drawings she finished. Its such a happy picture, I just wanted to share it. NOTE:  The V's in the sky are birds flying in the distance.

Johnny Appleseed & Apple Orchard Trip

Last Wednesday (September 26) was Johnny Appleseed Day! We took some time that day to learn more about Johnny, whose real name was John Chapman. Here's a fun, old Disney short film we watched. Its only about 17 minutes long:

Then, over this past weekend, we went to visit my Mom & Dad. While we were there, the "big boys" went golfing, and Mom and I took the kids to ECKERT'S ORCHARD. They had fun rides and activities for the kids there. Then, we also rode a wagon out to the apple orchard and picked a few apples. Here are some pictures to share of our nice day there...
