Yes, we are a very active group. However, we haven't had time to keep the website up to date with field trip/activity pictures. So, feel free to find out more info about our group under the "about us" tab. There is also a "resource" tab with lots of helpful links for you to use and a "contact" tab in order to get in touch with me. Thanks!

For February, we went to the Capital Park Museum downtown Baton Rouge. Mrs. Dee taught the children about Primary and Secondary sources regarding research. After their time in the classroom, they children went out in the museum to search and fill-out their papers using the info they learned.

In January, our group split into 5 different days enjoyed an adventure in the swamp with many of us experiencing "swampy" weather on those days due to the time of the year. The kids enjoyed an educational lesson on reptiles, looking around the educational building at all of the snakes, frogs, baby gators, and other swamp animals, along with a guide tour around their trails at the BREC Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center.

This past week, our group had 3 different tours scheduled to the State Archive Building with some of our older kiddos. These tours were for ages 10 and up. There is not an age limit for this building but they suggested we set the age to a minimum of 10 years old.
This was an incredible tour with much history from our great state of Louisiana. However, I believe the tour was even better due to our tour guide, Dr. Hardy (our state archivist). He was very personable as well as knowledgeable. He engaged the children and kept their attention. Dr. Hardy was filled with info and stories.

On August 28, we had our 2nd annual Back to School Bash. We had inflatables to accommodate the different ages of children that attended this event. The kids and parents were able to enjoy a great day of jumping, playing, and learning.
Also, we had Barn Hill Preserve come out with their mobile school presentation program. They brought a white cockatoo, red kangaroo joey, coatimundi, ball python, blue-tongued skink, and bearded dragon for a 45 minute presentation on each animal. After the presentation, they offered pictures which the parents could purchase with the joey, ball python, or bearded dragon and then printed while on-site at our event.
Those who wanted to stay after the presentation brought their lunch for picnic at on of our homeschool families homes, the Lindsays, who so graciously opened their home for this event. Thanks Craig and Candi for always being so hospitable and generous to us!
Hope all of you have a great 2015-2016 school year!
