Just in time for Fat Tuesday!
Grammy award winning Terrance Simien and his eclectic Zydeco Experience band mates have toured the globe with their unique mix of the varied rich indigenous music forms of Louisiana: zydeco-funk meets Afro-Caribbean reggae-world music. Rolling Stone calls Simien “a zydeco master,” and there is no better way to introduce children to a fun, new music experience especially around Mardi Gras time!

Homeschool Geography Club

I am beginning a new Geography Club that I am so excited to share with everyone!  This will be a great way for Moms/children to get to know one another an a personal level.  Each month we will select a country and the children will research various aspects of that country, such as:

1.  Clothing/Traditional Dress
2.  Food/Ethnic Cuisine
3.  Climate
4.  Language
5.  Customs

This is not an inclusive list, but some ideas to get everyone started!  We will make passports for the children, so as they visit each country it will be marked in their passport.  Almost like traveling the globe!

Our first meeting is Monday, October 1, 2012.

I hope you will join us, we are meeting at the Stow Library, the 1st Monday of the month from 2-4PM.  If you would like to be a part of the group, please feel free to contact me at DecadentChocolate@gmail.com or (330) 630-3837.  I am happy to answer any additional questions you may have as well.

Hello Homeschool World!

Dear Fellow Homeschoolers!

Welcome to my blog, I appreciate you stopping by!  I plan on posting things I find beneficial along with field trips I organize.  The plan is 2nd Friday Field Trips each month!  I will also post Free activities and events.  Hopefully, there will be something for everyone!

I am relatively new to homeschooling.  It is such a blessing to be able to stay home with our girls and give them the education we want them to have.  I just love watching them grow and blossom in front of my eyes.  There are so many joys!

Here is to all things Homeschool!!!!

Cheers and I look forward to meeting you!

Kim
