WELCOME!

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

THIS SCHOOL YEAR (2017-2018): Our oldest child, EL, finished her formal education in May, so we only have our son, JJ to school this year. We intend to homeschool him through High School, and will be using a variety of different curriculum choices to complete this goal.

Please feel free to follow along....

Dairy Farm Field Trip

On Thursday afternoon, we took a field trip to a local Dairy Farm. It was a nice Fall day, and we all enjoyed the trip. It was fun and educational. Here are a few pictures...

Playing and "sledding" in the cotton seed. JJ is at the top.

Waiting for the cows to enter the milking barn.

The kids all had the chance to milk a cow by hand. EL did not want to do it. JJ wasn't too sure about it, but finally took a turn. Here's a short video...
