Spring Babies!

We have been stuck at home for most of the last three weeks while two of our bathrooms are being remodeled. A common misperception of homeschoolers is that we’re at home all of the time. Now, that we’ve had three weeks of just that…well…we’re going a little stir crazy. We are definitely not the “stay… Continue reading Spring Babies!

It’s been a month or so since my last post and time sure has flown by.  We’ve been busy getting out and enjoying the beautiful spring weather before it heats up for the summer.   I can’t believe it took us so long to visit Spring Mountain Ranch.  It’s just a quick drive outside of… Continue reading Field Trip – Spring Mountain Ranch State Park

So Many Choices

It seems that every week I discover yet another activity that I think our girls would enjoy.  It has been so hard to choose!  I can see how it would be very easy to just sign up for every extra activity and ignore “school” stuff completely. Our girls tried gymnastics and dance during the last… Continue reading So Many Choices

Mount Charleston field trip

A local homeschool group recently started nature study outings.  Our first one was last week.  We met up with a group of about 8 moms and their kids at Lee Canyon Meadow on Mount Charleston about an hour outside of Las Vegas. I want field trips to play a prominent role in our homeschooling journey… Continue reading Mount Charleston field trip
