Is it possible to be a dedicated homeschooling mom while still making time for myself as an individual (a girlie girl who likes cute shoes)? I like to think so. Follow along, and I'll let you know for sure.

Trust me . . . it's not ALL about the shoes.

Discovering Medieval Times

The kids in our homeschool group were transformed into lords and ladies last week in preparation for our trip to the Renaissance Faire. On Monday, we had a special co-op for the kids to make their costumes, and they turned out amazing! Friday morning we headed out to the faire, where we watched craftsmen and artisans from the period, took in a jousting match and had our names written in calligraphy.

Knight Noah was armed with his camera since there is a photojournalism assignment that goes along with our studies. Since I'm not sure we'll get to it in a timely manner (trying to wrap up our Thanksgiving and USA units and sneak in a study on US currency before we leave for our trip to DC), I wanted to post a few of his shots here. That boy has serious skills with the camera (it helps when your Grandma is a photographer!)
