Field Trip Friday – Minute Man National Historical Park

Wow. I can’t believe it has taken me a month and a half to get all the Massachusetts posts up! What a trip! I promise this is the last one. 😉 I’ve been calling this part of the trip the North Bridge, and we did see the North Bridge, but it turns out we...

Summer break is finally here!!

I don’t know if I’m going to stick with the local school schedule next year or not. We get so tired of school going until the 3rd week of June! Of course, we like not starting until after Labor Day… And if I switch it this year we’re going to...

Field Trip Friday — Last Day of School

I’ve got one more Massachusetts post to put up, but yesterday was the last day of school so I’m going to blog about that this week. I’ll try to get that last MA post up next week. We had a mad scramble to finish things at the end of the school year....

Field Trip Friday — Picnic on Walden Pond

If we’re facebook friends, you’ve already seen a picture or two of our picnic on Walden Pond and maybe caught a little of the excitement I felt at seeing it in person. Seriously, people. WALDEN POND. I’m still giddy! On our way to the pond we made a...

Ballerina Girl

We were thrilled to find a Christian dance company when we moved to NY similar to one Novella participated in in Alabama. She only got to dance for one semester in Alabama, but she was hooked. It is clearly one of her passions! Kings Dancers works an entire school...

Field Trip Friday — Concord Museum

After leaving Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, we drove down the road to the Concord Museum. From Drop Box We debated long and hard about what to see and what to leave for next time. There is a possibility that we will be leaving New York at the end of the summer so we knew...

Field Trip Friday — Author’s Ridge

Our first stop the day after Abe’s black belt testing was Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in Concord, Massachusetts. I knew Louisa May Alcott’s house was in Concord, but I had no idea how many other author’s lived there. The apartment we were staying in had a...

He’s a black belt – again!

If you know us personally, you probably know Abe’s black belt story. He set a goal for himself to attain black belt status in Tae Kwon Do before his ninth birthday. Yes, I did say *ninth* birthday. Isn’t it funny how the oldest never seems little? Getting...

Field Trip Friday — It’s Back!

From Drop Box Field trips have been sadly lacking from our homeschool this year. We participated in a once a week co-op and never could get our schedule quite right. Now that it has ended for the year, we have a little more free time for exploring the area. Last...
