This week we got to see the largest collection of millstones in  US. Our roadschool adventure took us to visit the McHargues Mill house and bird sanctuary. Unfortunately, all the historical markers were badly weathered and hard to read. We did, in Unschool fashion, google information on the Mill, and learn it was built in 1812 and was a working mill that made three grades of flour, bran, corn meal, and even wool.

Don’t get me wrong we loved visiting Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge but honestly you need a thick wallet to enjoy it.  I was told recently that everything is only six dollars and not that expensive, keep in mind the person who told me this hadn’t been to Gatlinburg for 30 years.  Here is my warning, everything is $26 per person, and some are more and even a few dollars less but make sure your wallet is Continue reading

I have asked myself this very question many times. Should you homeschool all year or should you take the summer off? Honestly, you should do what ever works best for your family.

Relaxing to us mean we might not do math for a month or two, or when we finish reading a series of books as a family we might take Continue reading
