1. I love your pictures of the ship replicas. That would be such a fun field trip! You are right, the school year is flying by!

    Thanks for hosting Weekly Wrap-Up. Hope your upcoming week is a great one!

  2. Kris,

    I always feel like I'm running behind all week when we're at a swim meet all week-end. Hopefully, today will be a bit quieter for you and you can get a head-start on the weeks ahead. I too find myself wondering where the school year has gone. On the one hand, we've accomplished a ton already but on the other hand, it seems like it's just flying by so fast! I have to admit I'm looking very much forward to our week off at Thanksgiving to decorate for Christmas and just have some down-time for a few days!

    I can't wait to read more about your experiences at Relevant.


  3. I love the pictures! I have given you a Versatile Blogger Award because I really enjoy your blog. Just go to my most recent blog post to see your mention.

  4. We saw the Nina when it was here a couple of years ago. Very neat! Hard to imagine traveling all the way across the ocean in such a tiny ship. Glad you had a good time at Relevant! It sounds so wonderful from all the reports I'm hearing!

  5. We got to see one of those ships, too, a few years ago, and I was also amazed at how tiny they were. I was actually looking for my pictures because we did a Christopher Columbus lesson recently…I'll just show my kids your pics!

  6. WOW…That looked like a lot of fun! I linked up for the first time. I have two preschoolers that I am Home Schooling. I have been a follower for quite a while now. I love all the great printables you offer….THANK YOU!

  7. My son talks about wanting to be in the Marines. He is obsessed with The Military Channel and his favorite past-times are playing military xbox 360 games or having Airsoft wars with his friends. I've started praying now.

  8. I'll be looking forward to your Relevant update! What a great opportunity. Looks like you had a great week, and I love your focus on history. The cut-and-run story is quite something to imagine. Thanks for hosting for us!

  9. We were able to see the Nina and Pinta the end of September and really enjoyed it. I was also amazed at the size of the ships. No way you'd get me sailing across the ocean on one of those puppies. UH HUH!

    I also have a son that dreams of the military. In fact, since he was four he's spoken of nothing else, talk about determination. Scares me to death.

  10. Aren't those tall ship amazing! We got a chance to board the HMS Bounty, AKA the Black Pearl of Pirates of the Caribbean fame this summer, and it was amazing. I'm with you: those suckers are *tiny.* We learned that the whole "don't put your elbows on the table" thing dates from then: you don't want to act like an uncouth sailor or get pressed into service on a ship not of your choosing! Sadly, I never got around to blogging it, probably because we went about a week after the baby was born, and I was beat by the time we got home.

  11. Such great photos! I would love to have seen those!!
    And my ds (11) talks of an army career…He might grow out of it…maybe.

  12. Great pictures and fun!! I wanted to thank you for hosting Weekly Wrap Up. Last week was the first week we joined in. It's such a great way to bring homeschoolers together.
