What I’ve really come to enjoy about homeschool is being able to take the kids on educational field trips throughout our town.
It breaks up our week nicely and gives us a chance to step outside of the classroom as we explore God’s world.
Not only do they learn so much but their spirits become alive as they’re able to learn through hands on activities.
These are the moments they will never forget – as responsible adults teach them about safety,
The boys had so much fun learning how to twist metal.
Especially to hear the singe of a job well done as they thrust their finished piece into a bucket of cool water.
We practiced reading with one to one correspondence.
We learned about responsibility in taking care of God’s animals.
We also learned how to engage, respect, and admire the elderly.
We thanked him for volunteering his time – for being so kind to us and helping us learn.
I also enjoyed being outside and capturing bits of beauty.
I wonder what kind of vine this is that’s blooming at this time of year?
It’s great that we’re able to have these learning trips with Dad and little mama as well.
This week Gabe took Exploration Day off from work so that as a family we can go apple picking and then he’s taking the boys skateboarding for P.E.
Yeah… another awesome, radical part about homeschool 😀
Do you have any suggestions for homeschool field trips? We’re still planning out our calendar so any advice would be great 🙂
