New season. New schedule

Our new schedule feels like it may be over-scheduled at this point of the year but I have learned over the last two years of homeschooling that we like to be out exploring with friends and I can always make adjustments as needed.

Paramount Theater for Marionetas de la Esquina, a puppet theater company from Mexico City. "Sleeping Beauty Dreams"
Science Day at Bob Bullock Museum, we make several visits a year for the homeschool day and the IMAX nature movies. 
Witt Museum off to SanAntonio we went in September for the Dino exhibit and

A walk to the park on a autumn day. Exploring and talking about our local environment.
