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....

FIELD TRIPS: Orchard, Nature Center, and Llama Farm

On September 24th, we went to an ORCHARD and learned about apples and pumpkins. We also went through a corn maze...

On October 15th, we went to a NATURE CENTER to learn about deciduous trees (leaf trees, or trees that lose their leaves in the Fall)...

JJ made a new friend.
(But, we did let him go!)

On October 16th, we went to a LLAMA FARM...

JJ is getting ready to walk a llama through an obstacle course.

EL did not want to take a llama for a walk,
but she enjoyed visiting with this one.

The gestation period for a baby llama is 11 1/2 months!
