School on the Go

One of my favorite things about homeschooling is no guilt vacationing. We can get up and go whenever the opportunity arises. There is no make up work or angry teachers to deal with upon our return. We just take a little time each day and do our school work in our fun new environment!

The other super cool thing we got to do while in Lake Tahoe was to see the salmon spawning....this was super cool, stinky, gross, and educational!

The silver ones are already dead and the red ones are still alive.

Owen lost his pacifier into the spawning waters....eeeeewwwww

Then we drove around the lake stopping to read the look out information!

Measuring Carrots

We decided to compare and contrast carrots by measuring them and weighing them. We were able to see that things that are the same type if thing are not exactly the same but have a lot of similarities...the boys loved doing this especially since they got to eat their project afterwards.

Riley's Farm Field Trip!

The boys had so much fun going out to this farm.  We had read Little House On the Prairie in preparation for this field trip.  We learned about Pioneers and wagon trains.  We also got to help make apple cider and do a tin craft while we were there.  We rode in a horse drawn hay ride and learned about the surrounding mountains and about apples.

 We spent the day with our good friends the Wallace's.  We ended our adventure with caramel apples that were so super yummy!!

The Aquarium Field Trip

We learned about habitats this time.  The boys were excited to get called on to help put stuff up on the wall.
Owen decided to just lay on the floor for a while...

 there were some cool things to touch in the tank...

 Owen wanted in on the action!!

 we got to see the scuba diver and he talked to the kiddos, they thought that was awesome!
 we got to hang out with Kevin's friend Scotty...
 These are my favorite animal at the aquarium...the leafy sea dragons!!
The Aquarium is always fun for the boys!! I am glad we got to hang out with some friends while we were there :)
