January Homeschool

 

Because we’re just coming off of winter break and usually the weather is yucky right now, January tends to be a little light on homeschool activities. HOWEVER, we have at least one open gym every week to help get the wiggles out when it’s too cold to be outside. If you DO want to get outside, we’ve got a homeschool hike. And to balance out the physical with some mental workouts, check out what’s happening at our local museums!
