So time has really flown by in our house lately!! We have started homeschooling and just as we got a good groove going for that, we headed off to a dream vacation in Disney. Our trip started as one week and morphed into two! We are back now though, and we are once again falling back into the ebb and flow of every day life. I thought I would share a bit of our homeschooling and our trip with you today, but be on the look out for many more quilty related things to come real soon!

We started homeschool a little bit early this year for two reasons. First, I knew we would be heading to Disney in mid-September, so I wanted to start a bit early to make up for any lost time. And second, my son was excited to just get started!! We learned about many interesting things, just a few that I took pictures of are ….

Pirates …

Making a homemade compass …

Flying a Kite …

Capillary Studies …

The science of cleaning pennies …

A new hobby, letterboxing …

and a trip to the Art Museum …

We had so much fun with all our activities, and we both learned so much. My style of homeschooling would fall under the category of “Relaxed Homeschooling”. Which to us basically means we do not have a curriculum to follow. I have a general guideline of things I would like to see him learn, but for the most part I am allowing him to express his interests in a topic, and we are building our own curriculum around that. It is really working out very well for us.

Our trip to Disney was simply AMAZING. Having never been there before, I had no clue what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised at every turn. I am in the process of writing up our trip report right now. I took notes after each day, so I could be sure to keep a record of this wonderful trip. I am not sure my family will have the opportunity to travel again for quite some time, so I want to be sure to remember this wonderful family trip. Here are just a few pictures of the trip.

Although the trip was so awesome, it is nice to be back home and back into the swing of things. My goal for the coming weeks is to get some tutorials done, and do some updates to the store. Be sure to keep an eye on my blog for all the fun things to come!

Happy Quilting!

We just got back from Orlando last night and spent a day @ Disney’s Animal Kingdom. I couldn’t stop looking at that Tree of Life!!!! I must have spent 1/2 hour at least staring at it from all different perspectives. It’s really fascinating!
