We started homeschooling:
Then we took our first homeschooling fieldtrips!
First to a farm, to learn about pioneer life:
Faith lost her first tooth:
And Shaun had a conference in Austin, so we tagged along with him.
First a road trip to San Antonio and the Alamo:
And lots of fun on the Riverwalk:
Faith completed the Alamo's Young Couriers program as part of her "schoolwork":
We went underground at the Natural Bridge Caverns to explore cave formations:
And bat-watching in Austin on the Congress Avenue Bridge:
The "cloud" of birds? It's really bats!
While Shaun conferenced, F&B and I went to the Capitol:
And checked out the cool exhibits at the Visitor Center, including cowboys:
Then we headed over to the Museum of Texas History where we saw an interactive movie and a really amazing museum:
We came home and Faith had a "Wizards of Waverly Place" movie pajama party with her friends:
Then back to schoolwork once again:
Lots more to come, we have some great homeschooling field trips planned, Faith's 7th birthday is on the horizon, the State Fair is coming soon, and I am hoping to head over to Fossil Rim & Dinosaur Valley with the kids before the weather changes.
