the old salem candle tea is a standard christmas tradition around these parts. nevermind that last year was the first year i had ever attended in the 16 or so years that i’ve lived here-ish. when we went last year, we were on our own, and had an early tour time and just drove into […]
some november field trips.
one day, we were at the library, picking out books, looking up books to put on hold, guessing the number of pieces in the candy jar, when our friendly librarian told us that someone had just returned the library’s pass to the local science museum. we jumped at the chance to check it out for […]
cow and ice cream field trip.
on the day after our bethabara park field trip, the girls and i had another field trip on the schedule. this one, organized by some folks in our co-op, was to the homeland creamery, in julian, nc. we weren’t sure we would see anyone we knew, but we were pleasantly surprised when hazel’s best friend, […]
“wild + free” field trip day.
when we first arrived back in winston, i was really worried about finding homeschool communities that matched with our lives. there’s a lot of co-ops and groups here, but they aren’t much of a fit. i did learn about a local chapter of the wild + free homeschoolers starting up, and i even went to […]

for the last couple of weeks, we have been learning about bees for science. we’ve read books, watched videos, watched the bee movie, wrote a bee book, made a bee craft and finished off the study with a trip to our favorite local beekeeper, mark duncan. (he’s a friend of ours from church and he […]
