One of the questions we've been asked alot lately is, "Are you done with school for the summer?" The short answer is no. See, the Geek and I kinda approach this whole homeschooling gig as a 24/7, 365 day a year adventure. Teachable moments happen all the time (which is true whether you home school or send your children to a "brick and mortar" school, if you really think about it) and we have learned to not just embrace them, but actively seek them.
This past weekend was no exception. We went for a ride to see the area where the Geek's extended family ("greats" and "great-greats", if you will) had lived. Our final destination was to take a peek at the one room schoolhouse many of them had attended.
Voyageurs --- fur traders of the 18th and early 19th centuries. Viola! A teachable moment!
