You may not be seeing as much of me for awhile as I am going to be super busy getting my new business organized! In case you did not see the announcement on Facebook, here is our official announcement...
We are still pretty busy with the garden, but I am starting to think ahead to the new school year. For science this year we will be studying Apologia's Exploring Creation With Botany (*Not an affiliate link!). I was going through it to see what kind of supplies I need to get for the experiments and I realized that a lot of the activities would be best done outside in the summer. I decided that on the days we are not processing our garden produce I will try to do activities from our Exploring Creation With Botany book. We have been having a lot of fun since we started that!
We went camping at the lake for four days last week and I thought I would share with you some of the things we did and show you all the things we learned and why I consider our camping trip a homeschool field trip :)
I mentioned in my strawberry post that when we went to get strawberries at the u-pick we were pleasantly surprised to find out that there were saskatoons ready too! I could not resist picking a pail of saskatoons, but I felt a little guilty about it because our neighbours actually have a saskatoon u-pick, which is only about a mile across the field from where we live! Since the saskatoon farm is so close to where we live I decided we needed another field trip :)
We made another trip to Treasure Valley Markets, (where we got our strawberries). They have such a wide variety of fruits and vegetables there that I could easily go there every week! I went there mostly for the sour cherries this time, but came home with another pail of strawberries and some cabbage too! It really is a treasure valley there :)
