This week I am linking up with Chestnut Grove Academy for Field Trip Friday. I look forward to see what field trips other homeschoolers have went on.
Last week we went to a Homeschool Day at the Children’s Museum. I honestly expected more out of a Homeschool Day. Going there was just like any other day. They have different areas that the kids can pretend play. Yes that is really neat and fun when you have a bunch of kids. It isn’t fun for the older kids who go along. Really there was nothing different about it. I would have thought maybe they would have had some fun activities. They had two activities. One was an art project and the other was the lego class we paid additional for. I know both kids did have fun. Brittany had a lot of fun because her BFF was there from skating.
When I think about Christmas lately, I think that it has really been so commercialized and people are forgetting what the true meaning of Christmas is. I was blessed to review If He Had Not Come, which is a classic story by Nan F. Weeks, reintroduced to a new generation by David Nicholson.
The author of this book David Nicholson had heard Nan Weeks’ story If He Had Not Come for the first time while he was in adult Sunday School. He said that it captivated him and that he wanted to share it with his family and has shared it every year on Christmas. He liked it so much that he wanted to share it with all of us by reintroducing it to us.
Their Name is Today: Reclaiming Childhood in a Hostile World by Johann Christoph Arnold is a book that all parents and people who are in contact with kids should read. There are a lot of hostile forces that threaten to deny children a healthy and happy childhood. The author highlights drastic changes in the way our society treat children, but he also brings together the voices of dedicated parents and educators who are finding creative ways to give children the time and space they need to grow.
One of the favorite subjects in this house is Science. We love science from learning new things to the hands on science experiments. When the review came up for Fascinating Education I was very intrigued, as they assume that the student knows nothing about biology, chemistry, and physics. Of course I knew about biology because I took it in high school, but my son never studied biology. For our review we are reviewing Fascinating Biology. This is for kids in middle school through high school. It’s even great for an adult who may be interested in the course.
