Homeschooling Journey Weeks 34 and 35

Who is adoring this warm spring weather?  Ahhhh, loving it!  With warmer weather comes exciting outdoor homeschool fun and activities.  We are planning our trip to the zoo in a week or two, looking forward to that.  Can’t miss a good ole’ visit to the zoo, haha.

The past few weeks have been on the crazy side of things as we are gearing up for end of year activities, I am sure you can relate.  We have choir, dance, gymnastics, and piano to prepare for and are so ready to get the show on the road, whoot!  Our Homeschool Connections classes are coming to a close as well.  The girls are so sad.  It’s been a blast, but this homeschooling mom is ready for a nice long break of some sort.  Do we get those? LOL

A couple of weeks ago, we took a homeschool field trip to the Exploration Station in Canton.  If you have never been there, you totally need to plan a trip.  It’s super cheap ($1 for kids, $2 for adults) and a lot of fun for the kids and yes, very educational.  The station is open every fourth Thursday of the month.  It’s basically a walk through of the human body.  I never even knew this was there.  So awesome!  Here are some pics below to give you an idea of our adventures:

 

The girls also enjoyed learning how to shuck corn last week.  They actually enjoyed it, haha!  Guess what their new chore is when we have corn on the cob with dinner?

I have been trying to get together the girls end of year homeschool portfolios.  To help with this, I came across an awesome App that you  may be highly interested in.  It’s the Homeschool Helper App.  It’s only $4.99 and the features are amazing.  Everything can be saved, emailed, and printed for your records.  From book lists to attendance, etc., I am so glad I found this thing.  You can keep track of multiple students for every year.  It’s my new best friend, haha!

Sweet Pea celebrated her 10th birthday on May 2nd!  I can’t believe it.  Where has the time gone?  Our little Jelly Bean is about to turn 4 on the 13th.  (Sigh) Time really does go by too quickly.  My hubby and I will be celebrating 14 years of marriage on May 15th.  I am so excited about that.  Again, where does time go?  May is definitely a busy month in our house.

Well, I think that’s it for now.  I am planning our summer learning adventures.  Math, reading, and writing will most definitely still be in the mix.  I can hear the groans and moans of my girls now, haha!  Oh, they love it. 😉

Happy Homeschooling!
