We're Back from our Mexican Rivera Cruise!

What a great time we had. We got to see my aunt and uncle and cousins in in San Diego, whom I have not seen in a long time! (about 35 years for my cousin) We foolishly did not get any pictures! Then we toured the USS Midway aircraft carrier in San Diego Bay and quickly boarded the Elation cruise ship bound for the coast of Baja California! Quite surely my titles will not end up in line with the pictures so I will have list them ahead of the pictures.

5. First excursion trip on the shores of Mexico
6.This rock formation is one of the most photographed spots in Mexico and is the location for "Pirates of the Caribbean." It is the furthest most tip of the Baja Peninsula. 
7. On the excursion tour ship
8. Still more of the beautiful spots on the point. I wanted to get out and sit on that beach!

20 Great Reasons to Homeschool

This may be a little small to read so if you actually cannot read it go to this link, scroll down to the color version and it will be large enough to read. (for some reason I could not get the image larger)  In fact, once you are at the source, go ahead and  pass the image on in your blog or emails. You will be participating in something called "viral advertising!" 
Go for it Jim! 

PS Notice I changed the title to- 20 Great Reasons TO Homeschool. For those of us who already do educate at home these are familiar reasons. For those that do not (yet) these are just extra tidbit reasons in addition to the real intent of home discipleship because we all know none of us started homeschooling so our kids so they could wear their pajamas to school or so they could sleep in on rainy days! Some days are hard but I would NEVER have it any other way!
Living a lifestyle of learning daily!
