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....

Summer Fun - July 2014

At the beginning of July, the kids attended a Puppet Boot Camp at a nearby church. They really enjoyed learning more about the craft of puppetry.
 
JJ received 3rd place in the Junior division for his lip syncing skills.

EL was excited that her name was drawn to WIN a puppet! This picture is blurry, but you get the idea. We will definitely be using this puppet in a future performance at church.
 
The kids each made a puppet out of a hat.
Here's EL with her puppet.

Here is a video of the Hat Performance, done under blacklight:

We stopped at an Outdoors Unlimited event where JJ
took the chance to fish, shoot arrows, and throw tomahawks.
