Welcome to another Week in Review. This is where I catch you up on all the goings on here at Nourishing My Scholar.

So we are … [Read more...] about Our Week in Review

We had a zoo day this week! We took the children to a local private zoo in Limestone, Tennessee called Brights Zoo. We have been to this zoo several times in years past and have always enjoyed it.

This visit, too, was memorable because it was our daughters first experience at Brights … [Read more...] about Zoo Day!
Welcome to another Week in Review here at Nourishing My Scholar! We had such a fun week with it's ups and down. The down would be that I got stung by a hornet and ended up at Urgent Care for a Steroid Shot...not fun. I also haven't quite decided when our first "back to school" day will be.

August is upon us and for many of us, it brings with it the planning of another homeschool year. Curriculum's and school supplies bombard our senses as we walk through stores and browse online. It can be quite intimidating and overwhelming. I found myself jotting down notes about this upcoming school year while I sipped my coffee earlier this week. Our homeschool doesn't run off of a … [Read more...] about Eclectic Homeschooling Curriculum: Pre-K and 4th Grade

We moved from our community to a farm, and we have … [Read more...] about Are We Still Unschooling?
