Sensory bins or “rice tubs” are not only for young children. Our 12-year-old daughter had a great time making rainbow rice and running her hands through it.
Our family’s newest pet is a winter white hamster named Shadow, bought at Sarah’s choice with her birthday money.
Chris and Sarah made chocolate-chip-mint cookies for a 4-H meeting and talked about baking and volcanoes.
Giving Sarah the freedom to make decisions is a big part of our homeschooling experience.
In her quest to bring a winter white hamster home from the pet store, Sarah made a list of all the supplies she’d need and (gasp) did some math.
Our top five homeschooling resources aren’t very “curriculum”-based. They’re things like our parks, our library, our 4-H program and more.
Want to have some live prehistoric pets? Grow your own triops. We did. They’re kind of cool… in a crustacean-like way.
Sarah had her first non-family sleepover guest, and we enjoyed a bunch of musical theater in the form of The Phantom of the Opera and Annie!
Our trip to a Celtic Woman concert made a great celebration of the end of our first week of homeschooling!
Sarah decided to write her own NASCAR fan fiction story about Jimmie Johnson after building a model of his racecar!
