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....

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"
