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.

We visited the Brevard Zoo for the first time last spring, and quite honestly, we were blown away. They have several different areas representing different continents where you can explore the animals from each region. Our favorite by far was the giraffe area, where the giraffes walk right up and you can actually feed them. There is also a splash park and kids exploration area, and the zoo offers homeschool classes and camps.

We have at least two return visits planned this year as part of our Animals Around the World unit, so we'll definitely be taking advantage of this deal!


  1. we bought our zoo membership for $43 and guess what we can use it at the aquarium too. it is the best thing ever

  2. That's a great price! Which aquarium do you go to?
