Get Out and Explore

 

It finally feels like summer here in Northeast Ohio, though it seems like we just skipped over spring. From chilly days and nights straight into 89 degrees with humidity… whew! The sprinkler and baby pool are out, the gardens are sprouting, and the kids are falling in bed at night exhausted after running around with the neighbors all day.

We plan to do a lot of fun things this summer – old-fashioned fun that doesn’t cost much, but builds lasting memories. Make sure you print out our Family Fun Summer Bucket List so you can play along. Most of all, take some time to get outside and explore your city, town, or parks.

With Brian being home now for the summer, and a bunch of mini trips planned – including a trip for me to The Savvy Blogging Summit with my favorite little blogger buddy and my big blog-buddy friend – the posting schedule might be heavier on some weeks and lighter on others around here. I’m doing my best to keep getting great content up for you 3-5 times a week here at RLL.

Over the next few days & weeks I’ll be sharing tips for answering the critics, resources and reviews of things I’ve found of value to our learning and parenting, more books I love for homeschooling and parenting gifted children, frugal summer fun, recipes, giveaways, and more about our own approach to hands-on & interest-based homeschooling.

Is there something specific you’d love for me to post about? Do you want to know more about a topic I’ve already covered? Are there science topics you’d like me to create hands-on units for like I did with our electricity and magnetism study? Now’s the chance for you to tell me what you’d find valuable. What are you interested in seeing more of here at RLL? Let me know:
