So, for the next couple of weeks, before we take our road trip back to Utah, to move Marissa back home (in preparation for her move to Rexburg, Idaho in early September so she can be a BYU-I student), we'll be more indoors than out. It's a good thing we have plenty of activities to keep us busy, such as packing for our road trip (Marissa especially, but we also bring back books and movies, etc. to trade out!) and creating some art and crafts which I'll be sure to feature here in future posts.

We hope Mother Bird is nearby protecting and training her young one.

If you'd like to see a re-cap of our homeschool year, please visit this post on my Happy Heart's Homeschool blog. If you happen to know someone who is considering homeschooling their kids this upcoming year, please send them my way! I'd love to offer them encouragement and helpful tips from seven years of experience. Homeschooling ROCKS! I wish more moms would consider homeschooling as it is so beneficial for families in today's world. I really wish traditional parents would consider why our public school system is the way it is. Who decided it was best to teach our children by age groups? Who decided it was best to teach them in stuffy classrooms with boring textbooks and lectures for six hours every day? Who decided every child has to learn the exact same things at the exact same time? Homeschooling parents question these things and they put other methods to the test, and do you know what most of us are finding out? Learning come naturally and is actually enjoyable when children are in a natural environment (at home and outside in the real world). So, dare to be different! We are and we love it! To learn more about homeschooling, please visit my homeschool posts under the homeschool labels or visit my other blog. Until next post...
