Camp Flintlock Field Trip
We went on a great field trip today to Camp Flintlock with other homeschoolers. Our dear friends run the the camp. Ari and Ryan enjoyed learning more about Colonial Days hands on. The kids got to many fun activities including see a musket being fired, play colonial games, throw tomahawks, write with quill pens, dress up, make cords, make necklaces, dance, learn about drums and their use in the Colonial Military, see a cannon being fired as well as many other fun outdoor activities. It inspired me to begin book 2 of Laura Ingills Wilder(Farmer Boy).
“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.” - Fred Rogers
Live in a way that the preacher doesn't have to lie at your funeral.
"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor souls who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat." --Theodore Roosevelt
Who am I? That is a difficult question to answer! I am a wife to a loving man! I am a Mom of 2 wonderful children of which I homeschool. I love to scrapbook and take pictures mainly of the kids. I have five dachshund that are as close to kids as they get.
