One of the things we did this year that we really enjoyed was to join a local history club. I owe a special thank you to a local Mom who was motivated and initiated this among our group of friends. Living in the South and studying a lot of civil war history for this year's CC curriculum, it was a perfect fit. We had many field trip opportunities that blended both our local North Carolina history with our CC studies of the Civil War period. I was very thankful that we did it and it gave us an additional chance to see friends and share in another educational experience together each month.

devotion last year, and a meaningful project the year before, so it was a year to bless someone. This year we decided to "egg" friends with blessings for Easter. So here's what we did, and there's still time for you to do it too!

Today we explored some fun with fossils and touched on catastrophism again! There were three fun projects, some weather related jokes and a dual of the zebra's to decide who would make it on the Big Boat! To end the day the kids created their own banana boat arks. Join us as we explore the fun of fossils!

For us, celebrating Pi Day was started three years ago by happenstance. I heard on the radio that Pi day was being celebrated by a local restaurant, offering slices of pie for $3.14 that day…mentioning it to my WW Moms, two of us ended up going and we've celebrated each year since. This year was a special Pi Day - it won't come again for 100 years! So we did a party this time, and it was lots of fun.
