I will not be including Duke and Bubbles curriculum for this year. We started out doing ok in August but after some pretty hard months we decided to enroll them both into public school.  There were many things that contributed to this decision and I hope that you all will support us as we are now a homeschool/public school family. If you have any questions about what we are using or would like suggestion on what might work for your kiddos please email me at Adventureswithsix@gmail.com or message me on instagram or FB at Adventureswithsix.

U.S. Space & Rocket Center Huntsville, AL

After dropping Pippi and Jem at AHG camp we drove North to Huntsville. We stayed at a new hotel called Home 2 Suites. I think it’s a cheaper division of Hilton. Anyways, once we got into the room I made quick work of cooking pizzas with the waffle iron. It worked out really well. Then we spent an hour or so swimming in the Hotel pool. By day two the kids were a lot more comfortable. It’s odd how easily everyone fell asleep while we were there. Maybe it was our busy day or the fact that I could see everyone from my bed. lol
We got up the next morning excited to learn and see all the space stuff we could. An allergic reaction to sunscreen tried to ruin our fun but I’m a mom and I brought Tylenol and Benadryl. On the short ride we could see some of the rockets standing tall. The whole day I kept thinking this rocket or that shuttle was in space. I would like to point out that this museum is very different from the National Air and Space Museum near DC. The U.S. Space & Rocket Center is focused only on space.
We took some cheesy pics before being allowed into the museum. The museum admission is free for Military families for the rest of this year. The admission price is well worth the experience. There are a lot of fun things that are included in admission such as rock wall, simulation ride, and a free tour in one of the buildings. Bubbles and Duke took advantage of all of the fun things to do. It was also great that Pooh was able to join in on he fun too.
The Space & Rocket Center involved a lot of walking which was good and bad. Good well because I love to walk but bad because little boys hate to do a lot of walking. Baby Kermit was ready to go after lunch but we still had a lot more to explore. I think two days would have been more enjoyable if we had had the time.
It was really kewl to see all of the different space themed things. The kids favorites were the many rockets, the moon rock, and the space suits. There was so much to see. The kids had so much to look at in just a couple hours. It was a great place to visit. I look forward to our next big adventure. I’m really hoping it’s a beach.

Summer 2018

I thought I’d take the time to share a little bit of what we have been doing this summer. I spend way too much of the summer obsession about curriculum and school supplies. But what else would you expect of a homeschool Mom who fully believes this is her calling. The kids have been doing alot of reading. The thought of winning a prize makes them read even more. I was so proud to walk into the room after a library trip and see them all reading. I tried to explain to them that teaching them to read may have been one of the toughest things to teach but it was one of the greatest gifts I could give them. Aside from a love for Jesus and our Catholic Faith of course.

We have also been been spending alot more time at the Natureplex. It’s become our favorite place to visit ( well besides the library and Michael’s lol). We have also spent some time at a splash pad, doctors offices (not as many as the spring) and the commissary.

The kids had the wonderful opportunity to attend/volunteer Vacation Bible School. VBS was something I did alot as a kid and I’m excited that my kiddos have the opportunity to attend too. Pippi and Jem volunteered at 2 church VBS’s. Pippi helping in the nursery and wherever she was needed and then with crafts. Jem helped with the 2-3 grades at both VBS’s. It was great for volunteer hours but more for life experience. Both weeks Bubbles, Duke and Pooh attended. It was Pooh’s first time going by himself and he had a blast. Baby Kermit was able to attend 1 because of the generosity of a friend. The other week he spent with mom and dad. It was great to spoil and spend extra time with the youngest of our bunch. We took him to Toysrus for the last time, out for frozen yogurt, shopping, out to dinner, and played video games with him. It was a really special week.

I bet you’re wondering if we did anything board game related and the answer is yes. We started what I would call a sort of campaign. We started playing Charterstone. It’s a game where you build the board and expound on the rules as you go; unlocking new cards to enhance the game. We still have 4 or 5 games to play before the summer is out. We have a few more really great things coming up soon and I look forward to sharing it with you all. Happy Summer!
