Hi Ho Hi Ho it's Geocaching We Go...

One of our caches!

We started our week with a little geocaching adventure.  If you have not heard of geocaching just go to  It is like a treasure hunt game.  Last Sunday morning we decided to give it a try.  It was a blast!!  We found three caches within a few miles of our house.  We also found some hiking and mountain bike trails that we never even knew where there.   

On Monday, I decided to take the kids and let them have a try at finding a cache.  There is one conveniently located at the park right next to the library. (one of our favorite parks)  The location was great and it was an easy find for kids.  They enjoyed it and so off we went to find another.  -fun family time and learning to read a map at the same time!  Does it get better than fun plus learning? 

This week we also invited some friends over to make Thanksgiving cards.  There is a lady in our area who collects cards for Meal on Wheels and they hand them out with the Thanksgiving meal.  Out came the construction paper and markers and stickers. Oh and let's not forget the warm from the oven cookies and juice boxes that made the card making even more fun!  now don't go thinking that I was some great domestic host who made homemade cookies because we had company coming over.  I am NOT that good a host.  They were pull apart Toll House!  hahaha

We also had a play date with new friends this week.  It is nice to sit and chat with another homeschooling mom about what works and what doesn't for their family. 

Next week will be a new homeschooling adventure for us.  We are taking our school on the road for the first time ever.  I am excited!
