Time for a photo!

It has been awhile since I posted a picture.  This one of the kids and I at one of our FIAR group field trips in March.  We were at Harris County Lake Park.  The older children had a class at Shearon Harris Nuclear power plant.  The fun thing is that it was taught by a former homeschool mom (that even used our curriculum)!  Everyone learned a lot and found the hands-on exhibits fun and interesting. 

While the older kids were at the power plant, the younger children had ranger led classes at a nearby park.  These were also experiential including games, facts about animals and going on a short hike. 

It was a cold, but beautiful day.  We stayed for a picnic lunch and the day warmed up.  The kids played on the playground equipment, exploring the park and played kickball on a large field.  I loved having a large span of time to just relax and enjoy my friends and family.  Our family stayed with another family until dinner time.  It was a fun and relaxing day for all of us.
