Every day is a blessing and our family knows that all too much after the sudden loss of one of the kids in the family. As a mom, I try to be even a better mom that I was before. I want each of my kids to know that I love them and tell them in different ways.
Leaving each of the kids love notes for the first 2 weeks of February is a priority for me. Each of my children have such amazing gifts to give each other and others. I love highlighting this for them.
Start this year. Cut 14 hearts out of pink, red or even white paper for each child. Each day, write an “I LOVE YOU because…” on the heart and tape it to their door BEFORE they wake up in the morning. What an AMAZING surprise for them. <3
We visiting a little known museum in Prescott, AZ the other day. The Fort Whipple Museum is on the VA grounds and filled with information on the fort and the hospital beginning from the times of the “Old West” of Prescott.
This museum takes less than an hour and I don’t recommend for super littles. Also, you do have to climb stairs to get in as well as to go upstairs. But otherwise, it is full of some AWESOME information on Prescott, AZ.
Fort Whipple Museum is located on the Veterans Affairs Medical Center grounds off AZ-Hwy 89 in Prescott, just north of the intersection with AZ-Hwy 69. Hours are Thursday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (closed federal holidays), and admission is free. Donations are accepted. Self-guided. Visit their website at: https://www.sharlot.org/fort-whipple-museum/
Searching out and finding activities in our area can sometimes be daunting. I have such a diverse set of ages and abilities in my family. We ran into a church family member at a local museum (more on that later) and our family was invited to check out this new Rock Wall Gym! https://www.prescottrocksandrec.com/
The crew was very excited to try something new… and these guys have won us over! We will see you soon! Homeschool groups, birthday parties! WOW! And you got an ALL THUMBS UP from my whole crew!
This is what homeschooling my children is all about. Elwyn has come a long way in 9 years, now in high school. Here she shows off at 6-years-old presenting a simple report (lapbook on Amelia Earhart) Check out our lapbooking introduction video and other videos on onDiscoveringEducation.us
Learning is so very important to me. I have begun sharing my knowledge online through OutSchool. My own children take classes through OutSchool as well.
You can see my upcoming class schedule in the link on my menu above.
Welcome to the Grand Canyon State, Arizona! Let's visit the history and the facts around Arizona, the 48th state of the United States.
In this class, we will be creating and completing a lapbook that is all about Arizona to include a variety of state facts like the state bird and motto. We will also learn about some of the fun, interesting and even WEIRD parts of Arizona like the ghost towns of Jerome and the dinosaurs of Holbrook. Did you know that the Flinstones live in Arizona?
