Homeschool is a Battlefield - Part 1

Last week the boys and I piled into the car and drove 3 hours north to Williamsburg, VA. We were in desperate need to get out of town and disconnect from the tech world. That meant limited access to email, social media, and text messages. I took pictures and fired them off to Instagram and Facebook, but other than that, I was pretty good.

8th grade is drawing to a close for Logan *cue me rocking back and forth in the fetal position* and I really wanted to visit a place with deep rooted history. It was vacation but it was also school. Our brains soaked in so much information by days ends, we would collapse onto our hotels fluffed beds and drool.

We didn't waste any time and dove right into a ghost tour our first night. Not only was in filled with spooky stories but we learned a lot about the area.

The creepiness of the photo above gives me chills.

There is no denying the horrible history of Williamburg. War is bloody. So many lost their lives. Hearts were broken, murders were committed. We have our own beliefs about spirits.

My camera started having tantrums halfway into the tour so I didn't take too many pictures.


I fell in love with this house












I plan on breaking our trip into parts because there is just so much. 
Who said you have to homeschool inside all day?
Pfft!
The world is our classroom!
