My September ATL Homeschool Field Trip Master List

Painting piggy banks during Creative Wednesdays at the West End Library.

So I’m practicing planning mindfully the things that I would love for us to do together in our lovely unschool life.  Often, I will know things are coming up, then forget about them and accidentally plan something else, or forget to budget accordingly.  This “school year”, with encouragement from my homeschooling friends over at Kid Cultivators Homeschooling Community, I have decided to do some planning.  As unschoolers, we don’t use curricula, and try to flow with our interests as much as possible, so planning for us is not developing workplans or daily schedules.  What it is looking like is thinking about all the possibilities, and making sure that we are prepared to jump on them when they come up.

With that in mind, I scoured the internet (tee hee, not really) for all the special events that are coming up and dropped them into our family calendar.  And now I’m sharing them all with you :).  Mind you, when I started out, I hadn’t really thought about sharing, so there are some things that I didn’t think my kid would be so interested in that aren’t included here.  Sorry about that :/  Also, not all of these are specific to homeschooling.

Hope you find something to enjoy!
