Back to School...

So it was back to school for us last Thursday when my parents left, headed back home to Texas. It was a light day of review followed by a field trip in the afternoon. It was our second time to see how they train police dogs at one of the top K9 training centers. The kids had a total blast watching the dogs as the trainers ran them through some quick training sessions. It was the perfect way to start back to school after the holiday break.

How often do your kids get to go on field trips? If you are a homeschooler, I hope it is on a regular basis. Nothing helps to motivate a kid like actually going somewhere fun to learn about something.

If your kids are in a traditional school setting (public or private school), does their class take regular field trips? If not, why don't you make it a point to go somewhere once a month. It doesn't have to be expensive - there are many free events open to the public. You just have to do a little research and find out where they are. Check out your local museums - art, science, history - as well as theaters and orchestras. They frequently host free events for the community.

I hope you've all enjoyed your holidays and are welcoming the comfort that a normal routine offers.


Back tomorrow with new resources for you...


Un abrazo...
