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....

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...
