Back to Reality??!!??


What a week!! We had a wonderful week in Florida and know are trying to get back to reality (aka real life.) I am posting about my daughter's Make A Wish trip (when I can!) on our family blog. I hope to have highlights of each place we visited.

This week I battled fatigue and a cold. I was heavy on the natural products to try and kill my cold and seem to have been successful. So how did school go? Well it was kind of an unschooling week. We did do some book work. But here is a look at how we spent the bulk of our time - and I am not feeling the least bit guilty!!

We visited a fire station for a fire safety program.

We visited a children's museum with hands on exhibits - Discovery Center.

All the children spent a large amount of time making things with Kin-ex.
From animals to egg beaters.

Apple picking with friends.

As you can see we all ate quite a few apples while picking.

The apples were hail damaged. Here is an example:

Now it will be applesauce canning time!

The view from the apple picking place:

Here are some pictures I took with my oldest son (17) while driving around today.

Looks like the perfect unschooling week! Lots of real-life experiences going on!

I can't wait till we get a chance to catch up again!
