2nd Field Trip: The Nina

It has been two years since I home schooled but I have returned with two standards that I faithfully kept before:

1. Never complain about homeschooling.  My reasons for homeschooling were not typical. But the reasons  that put us on this journey are still important to us.   So if I complain then my children will feel that they are not worthy of my sacrifice for them. And they will hate homeschooling too.

2. Field trips are not a day off. Field trips need to have a purpose.

Right now in Nate's 4th grade history he is studying the explorers and has reached Christopher Columbus.  And the Nina and the Pintail are docked in Louisville!
