If your joining today for real life homeschooling blog hop. I am Tiffany. A homeschooling, sewing, ranching momma to 4 boys.
Today I am sharing a day on summer range.
On this particular day we learned how to make an impromptu sun dial & how to tell time & direction.
My hubby explaining how it works & the process to my boys. It was interesting to me as well. I hope I never get lost, & have to do this as handy as it is.
Any time on summer range includes learning more about animal science as we care & ride the horses.
Nutrition & survival skills are discussed as we learn to cook over an open fire. Tin foil dinners were on the menu this particular night.
It wouldn't be time in the mountains if we didn't take a few minutes to cool off in the creek.
We spent an hour or two laying by the pond in the shade. The older three explored. They caught a few tadpoles & a frog. I love learning about different Eco systems first hand.
Of course a lot of time was spent observing & checking out the sheep & lambs.
Our Spanish is practiced as we visit with the herders. We like to keep a tally of the different animals we see.
The best part is we are learning first hand & hanging out as a family.
So there you have it a glimpse of a day on summer range.
Take a chance to check out the other lovely ladies.
