If you have visited here before, you can probably see that I have changed the name of the blog again. I started blogging at 4URuthie to tell the story of our journey to adopt our 1st daughter. I changed it to Mountains for Maggie when we were praying for God to move mountains on behalf of our 2nd daughter. Well now it is no longer just Ruthie’s or Maggie’s stories. It is now our family's story, and the stories of those we share life with, as we Conquer Mountains together. Both ConqueringMountains.net and 4URuthie.blogspot will lead here.

I Could Be A Homeschool Mom

IF homeschooling were all about field trips!

I met a man the other day who works at the National Weather Service and he was nice enough to let me bring Jack for a little tour. Jack loves following the weather so he was overjoyed when I told him about my plan. It was short and fun. My new friend showed Jack all the screens where they watch the weather and make predictions from. He loved it. They also handed him tons of magazines and a rain gauge.

Here are a few pictures from our adventure. Oh if homeschooling were this easy! But since it is not, I will stick to starting public school on Monday.

How much fun!! I have not read blogs in weeks and am so far behind. Hope you all are doing well. I adore your "kid quote of the week" it always makes my day!!

That looks like an awesome field trip! We got to meet with our local weather man for a group HS activity and the kids loved it.

Some food for thought though,the things really worth doing, usually aren't the easy. They are tough some days they feel downright impossible, but the rewards are so much more enjoyable than the ones we get by taking the easy route ;)

Have a blessed day!
