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....

OCTOBER FIELD TRIPS: Shooting Range, Llama Farm, and Ballard Nature Center

Our field trips in October were to places we have been before, except for the first one. On October 10th, we were visiting family in Northern IL, and David took JJ to a shooting range. He had a blast learning how to load and shoot a pistol, and David said he did a really good job!

On October 15th, we went to a llama farm. I think this was our third year doing this. The kids always love walking a llama through an obstacle course. Llamas are very sweet.

EL is walking a very sweet and gentle llama.

The kids took turns walking the llamas down the country road and back.

October 21st took us back to Ballard Nature Center, where this month's topic was on insects.

One of the kids is getting dressed up like an insect.

The kids are on a nature hike to look for insects.
With cooler weather coming, we won't be going on too many more outdoor field trips. Plus, with the holidays coming, our schedule may be getting a little crazy. But, I'm hoping to write a few new posts about other things we have been doing so far this school year.

Have a great weekend!
