Our Review Of Drive Thru History

       We were so excited to be given the opportunity to review Drive Thru History Adventures with Dave Stotts. We were given a one- year subscription to this website that is so much more than just videos! There is curricula for American History, Ancient History and Bible History. All the videos offered have a Christian worldview. I knew my son would love the American History and I knew the girls would love the Ancient History so it was a joy having my subscription cover the entire site! You can check out all of the videos that are offered in the Adventures TV section of the website. My son is 16 and the girls are both 13 and this was just perfect for their ages. I would think almost any age could use it though depending on a childs attention span. 
Drive Thru History Adventures

      Drive Thru History Adventures is available to use on multiple devices as well! That is great for on the go families and kids who like to take it to their bedroom to watch! 

As of now there are three courses offered, Bible History which is 18 weeks, Ancient History which is 12 weeks and American History which is 12 weeks. There is also a new course in the works for Spring!! The lessons are reffered to as "Adventures". It is like going on a field trip for the kids!

Peek At Our Week 21

       We had a full week! Besides the normal stuff the kids got to try new review items as well! Skyler got Zirrly Beads! Review on that to come and I will say she had quite a bit of fun with these little things!

Field Trip!!!! Civil War Days

        I was very surprised to find out that the town we live by had a museum! It is all about the Civil War this week for the Battle At Olustee. The museum was a must see and the festival was a fun day! 

      This nice lady told us all about clothes during that time period as well as the etiquette for those in mourning. I would not want to follow these rules or dress codes!

Field Trip!!!!!

      This was hands down an amazing field trip!! I love our museum and the things they come up with for the kids. It was truly a fun day. We visited The Gainesville History for Home School Days at their new exhibit, The Scoop On Poop! It was disgusting, gross, fact filled and just plain awesome! What kid don't wanna learn about poop LOL! 

      I loved the photo ops!

Peek At Our Week 20

      I am sad to see that our Medieval learning has ended for this year. It is always so much to learn and fun things to do. As a keepsake I had the kids make field trip lapbooks. We even had pictures of our day printed out to add into it. I know i got this free off line somewhere but for the life of me I cannot remember where.

Field Trip!!!!! Medieval Fair 2018!!!!!!!!!!!

      We wait all year! We plan for this! Our excitement builds until the day is finally here THE MEDIEVAL FAIR!!!!!!!!!!! We go every year and every year is better than the last, every year they learn even more and every year we add to the amazing memories we have made from this magical place!!! The Hoggetowne Medieval Faire!!!! We have things that have become traditions with this fair! We look forward to the actors every single year we know they will all be there! They are our favorite people of all! One day every year we get to step back in time to a place that is full of history and magic. It is as good as Christmas in this house!

      The actors are beyond amazing! We love that is the same people over and over, it feels like seeing old friends! Skyler always dresses for it and it never ceases to amaze me the way they all act towards her. She always feels so special at the fair. We have been enjoying lunch in years past only to have musicians come and sit with her asking even to sit with the fair maiden! Her shyness goes away for this day and she is this bubble of energy. All of the kids have their favorite places to visit at the fair and their favorite things to see. Before we leave for the fair every year Skyler has a picture in her dress! She looks so pretty!!

Peek At Our Week 19

      Well this is the week! The week we go to the fair and the kids are bouncing off the walls over it! Skyler is excited to give the King and Queen a special gift she has made for them. It is a triptych. It has all the pictures of them from her years at the fair.
