A Little House virtual field trip

A Little House Virtual Field Trip ~SimpleHomeschool
Jamie Martin, editor of Simple Homeschool, also blogs about motherhood at Steady Mom

As I’ve written before, the Little House books have influenced my life since I first read them as a little girl. I’ve read the entire series several times and have always had a dream–a dream that this year is going to come true!

I’ve always wanted to walk where Laura walked, see where she lived, and be inspired as a family along the way. Well, this summer it’s happening!

In June we’ll be heading west as a family–not in a covered wagon, but a minivan–to the Little House sites in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and South Dakota on a massive road trip.

I’m beyond thrilled to have the opportunity to do this as a family, but then I thought–why not take you guys along with me?

Of course, you won’t all fit in the minivan, but why not put together a virtual field trip so you can take your kids to Laura’s homes from your dining room or coffee table?

Ready? Let’s go!

Share your homeschool day in the life

dayinlifephotopicmo Written by Jamie Martin of Simple Homeschool and Steady Mom

Homeschooling doesn’t look the same for each family. But that’s one of the things that makes it great — it doesn’t have to!

During the past several weeks, we’ve been proud to share our fifth annual homeschool day in the life series — our largest ever!

We’ve heard from homeschool mom (and dads!) schooling between 1 and 7 kids, those who love unschooling, classical education, Waldorf, Leadership Education, or their very own styles that work for their families.

Those parents have given us a peek into their days, and we’ve been continuously reminded of the many different ways that people make homeschooling work.
