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....

Spring Peepers

It is finally Spring! Yay!

And, along with Spring comes the SIGHTS and SOUNDS of Spring! I love watching the birds, and hearing them chirp, don't you? And, the frogs begin chirping also.

This year, we have heard a "bird" chirping in our yard at NIGHT. At least, I thought it was a bird. But, after attending a class about amphibians at a local nature center this past Wednesday, we realized the sounds we are hearing are coming from a frog.

There is a small frog called a Spring Peeper that begins chirping in early Spring.


Here is a short clip from the class, so you can hear the chirping sounds. Listen carefully...
