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, has graduated, so we will be using a variety of different curriculum for our son, JJ, who is starting High School.

Please feel free to follow along....

SEPTEMBER 2016 FIELD TRIPS: Apple Orchard & Ray Hanna Stables


Lost Creek Apple Orchard 
This was our 5th year attending this orchard. They always give a nice, informational tour with friendly service.

Ray Hanna Horse Stable
The U of I Extention Office set up this tour. We were able to meet the trainers and caretakers of the race horses, see the equipment the horses wear during a race, and interact with the horses up close.

JJ's favorite horse was "Fox Valley Dandy"
