Gotta Love Homeschool!

Or vacations.   Lol! 
Headed to the Hill Country!

It was just beautiful!  We had a great time.  Although we had fun, we still had school.

We are using a Live Class from Currclick.  It was their last week, so they had to finish out the class.  That's what I just love about homeschooling.   I never would have thought to visit an out of town library.   The staff here was very homeschool friendly.  They opened up their conference room to us and gave us privacy to have our class.  

Thank you, Leakey Public Library!  

Speaking of public libraries.....I never realized how important it is to visit those libraries.   That particular library is in a small town.  Population: 357.  They are funded by how many people visit them.  Even if you don't check out books, some sell books and they have useful information concerning the goings on in the area.   At this particular one, I found a great deal of homeschool information.   They had Practical Homeschooling Magazine and 1 other that I don't recall.  Sorry.
I was also informed that because of all the visitors in that area, they had over 280 zip codes on their list last year.  I saw an address from Germany and 1 from Switzerland on their list too.  My point to all this is that it is important for us as homeschoolers to  visit these libraries, so they will be there when we need them.  Our support is very important to their existence.

Garner State Park 

We love hiking.   Lost Maples State Park is a great place.

Can't wait for our next adventure.   Homeschooling doesn't have to be school at home.
