Homeschool Spirit Week Day 1

Last week I found out that the 4th week in September is always Homeschool Spirit Week! This is our 9th year of home education and we are just now finding this out! Haha
On Monday, the first day was Homeschool away from home. It worked out beautifully because Monday was also Homeschool Day at the Tennessee Aquarium.
We got there as it opened and spent most all day. It was terrific! There was special exhibits and animals out to touch and get up close and personal.
We packed a picnic lunch and the weather was just right to enjoy some time outside and let the kids run and play off some energy.
The aquarium has beautiful grounds and when the weather is really warm there are places to wade and play in the water. It was a bit too cool for that, but the kids tried their best to talk us into getting in. Rascals.


  1. It is my 9th year of homeschooling also,and I have never heard of Homeschool Spirit Week either! The Tennessee aquarium looks like a lot of fun.

  2. Dear Chas,
    You did a great job of photo-documenting this event. It looks like a wonderful time was had by all.
    I am getting ready to set up an older friend for the winter. She doesn't drive after the first snow hits. I am wanting to put by some extra food stuffs in our pantry too. What do you recommend, and what is the safest,thriftiest way to do this? I would love to hear what Mama Chas has to say about this. My garden produce is canned, so the question is about grains, etc. and storage.
    Thanks in advance,
