The BEST homeschool group EVER!!!



Have I ever told you guys that I really do have the best group of friends that I share our homeschool experiences with. They are totally awesome. We have soo much fun. Our group is better than your group .. I mean seriously what other group can you call teaching your child how to do a shot a school function?!?!? Ok I guess that needs a little explanation. So we went to eat today as a group after our wonderful day at the farm. (more abut that in a minute) after lunch they bring complimentary shots of alcohol for the mommys for dessert and cute little Shirley Temples for the kiddos in shot glasses, looked like a good learning opportunity to me, I mean we are suppose to be preparing them for life. This is a very important part of collage. right??? I know I know mother of the year award here I come!!!!



THE FARM

The farm was awesome, We went to a goat farm today and the kiddos had a chance to learn all about how goats were raised and got to pet the goats and such. Then they had the chance to go meet the mama goats, the ones that give milk. They were much bigger than your standard goat. They had a great time, they learned how the goat was milked and even got to touch the milking machine and fell the suctioning power. They learned about Whey and how it was made, They watched as the goats were feed the y whey. Those goats were all over it. and they learned about goat cheese and how it is made. Now having a child who can not stand cheese of any type. Wanted to try the goat cheese. He thinks he might like it, the verdict is still out. It was a great experience. Lukas has told everyone he has seen today about the goats and the cheese. It really made me want to pack up and move to a farm. I can so see me living somewhere like that. What an awesome experience. See why I love this group. That is something we would have never found on our own.. Our homeschool group is awesome.
