Field Trip~Freshwater Fisheries Center

Freshwater Fishery Trip! As bona fide homeschoolers with an adorable gaggle of girls in our little group you know we have to take lots of field trips. Well, not LOTS. But enough to keep it fun and we recently had our best one ever! If you are ever within an hour or so of Athens,…

Digging ‘Taters

As you may have seen in previous posts, weeding isn’t my strong point. However I can do one thing, I can grow some pretty ‘taters! Potatoes are, without a doubt, my favorite veggie to grow.
