What homeschooling can look like...

Before we went on our trip to Arizona, we suspended many of our usual studies so that we could focus on learning about Arizona, its history and culture.

We took out a heap of books about Arizona from the library and read through them. The internet was a great resource too.
Each girl has a field trip fact and sketch book. They wrote and illustrated these books and then brought them on our trip to add additional facts and pictures.

Rebecca decided to do a page in her journal entitled, "Venomous Creatures That Can Kill You".

We didn't see any of these creatures, but it was good to know the many forms which death can take.

Homeschool your kids and you will avoid death by spider. The end.

That looks fun. Our homeschool days are rarely fun any more due to our current curriculum...definitely need more creativity in our lives!

These are "the days" that I remember so well. Excellent notebooks! This is the real-living stuff.

That does look like a good time. Well, except for the venomous spider part.
