Teaching the boys at home. Our family enjoys living and learning in Austin, Tx. We use a mix of Life of Fred, IEW, Wordly Wise, Story of Science, History of US, Just Write, AoPS. We attend Science Team, are Scouts, participate in Families in Nature, Coder- Dojo, Music School, Math Club/Team and schedule many fieldtrips, playdates, and family fun.
Part of our homeschooling week includes (sometimes many) outdoor activities: Austin Nature Center science class, Austin Families in Nature, Co-op, camping, Boy/Cub scouts, bike riding, parks, music concerts, soccer practice, baseball practice and hiking a trail. We love to be outside!
The weather is usually great here for all of these activities the entire year- yes its hot in August but that is perfect for swimming holes, beaches and the pools.
I enjoy taking the love of nature and the outdoors and including a lesson so we are constantly finding new items to bring home to our nature collection jars (on display in the living room).
Enjoy our outdoor/world learning pictures:
