We enjoyed an extended vacation in Winter Park, Colorado to celebrate all of our birthdays (all of us in February!) and it was WONDERFUL to take advantage of weekdays that most families were in school! ❤️ #homeschooladvantage#homeschoolvacation

Today I am super grateful for community, and how God consistently provides over and over again through all the transitions of life!
Also, I just felt the need to share this amazing blast from the past with my constant community, my sibs. #community#homeschoolvacation#yesthatisafannypackimwearing
Happy Winter Solstice Friends! I’m going to be taking a break from this IG account for a few weeks while we’re on “school vacation”. During that time I’ll be reassessing some of what we’ve been doing and re-simplifying. I love the Homeschool IG Community, but all of your fabulous ideas can overwhelm me sometimes. 🤣 I’ll be back! Yuletide Blessing to you all & Merry Christmas! 🎄 #theminimalistschoolstead#homeschoolvacation#minimalisthomeschool#minimalisthomeschooling
We swung down to the Canaveral National Seashore this evening right at sunset to pick up our Junior Ranger booklets for the week. We only had about an hour before the park closed but we had an awesome time checking out Turtle Mound. It was AMAZING - so much fun and really really interesting!! Coolest refuse pile I've ever seen for sure!! 😜

We are learning all about intertidal plants and animals and so we decided why not just take a road trip to the tidepools with friends. I love that we have this freedom and it's so exciting to see what we are learning firsthand out in the fresh ocean breeze. 🌊 🦀🐚🐙
Today's lessons: how to feed horses, how to roast a marshmallow, and how to navigate a corn maze. #homeschoolvacation

We spent some time indoors this afternoon due to a rainstorm, so Harmony had fun making silly sentences. This is the first time she made sentences by spelling words, with a little help from me, of her own volition!

Learning opportunities are all around, even when we go vacation with our whole family! Harmony went bug hunting with grandma and Auntie Em, explored the outdoors, did nature journaling of the caterpillars she found, practiced counting and writing numbers while playing Yahtzee, and got to take a real cave tour as a field trip. It's important to all of us that Harmony grows up seeing by our own actions that we all love to learn new things, enjoy reading, enjoy exploring new places, and have a desire to always grow in our knowledge and understanding, no matter where we are, even if we are on vacation!
Such a fun day at the Biltmore! I'm beyond happy that the kids were SO in to it! I loved seeing the excitement when the guide told us a particular item was from the Ming Dynasty and my daughter looked at me and said, "The Ming Dynasty!!! That's from my timeline!!!" Can't wait to incorporate this visit with her CC history sentence on the Vanderbilt's later in the year! #homeschoolvacation#homeschoollife#classicalconversations#biltmore#biltmoreestate#history
I love summer! Hanging out in bath robes past noon, painting, bike rides, movies...its only been 3 days, and I could definitely get used this (this is the first full summer break we've taken in 10 years as a home schooling family)! #summertimerocks#whathaveibeenmissing#homeschoolvacation
