I’m willing to bet that you have either not heard of these 6 wonderful downtown Memphis, Tennessee museums, or you have not visited all 6! Maybe it’s because they are hidden jewels amongst larger attractions, or maybe most folks believe they’re just children’s museums. Nonetheless, these history museums all reside in beautiful downtown Memphis, they’re all small and cozy, they’re more affordable to enjoy than some of the larger facilities, AND they contain so much enlightening information! With fall season approaching, Memphis weather is about to be PERFECT for outdoor, downtown walking, just in time for an unexpectedly fantastic, majorly surprising, wonderfully educational experience!
Just for you, my fellow home schoolers! Here’s how to make and enjoy a wonderfully interactive, extremely engaging, educationally fun field trip out of one “simple” visit to your very own Bass Pro Shops, specifically the Memphis Downtown Bass Pro Shops. Make that SIXTEEN (16) activities to take advantage of during your visit. Enjoy! :) See video here!)
A few weeks ago, I engaged in a support group discussion about “meeting and greeting.” A recurring concern, it seems, is that most people WANT to feel “welcome” in a group, feel a part of a group by feeling welcomed, but more importantly want to be befriended or approached FIRST! Welllllllll... if the majority of the members each feel the same way, thennnn... who meets who? Who welcomes who? Who ends up feeling welcome in the end? So I thought, this may be a nice chance to share ways on how to BE THE ONE to make the first move, to take the first step in creating possible friends and maybe even long-lasting relationships, AND to give you artistic ideas on how to start the “relationship growth process.”

Quick, simple and easy: we’ve compiled a back-to-school check list for home school moms to use to help you prepare for the upcoming school year. Whether you homeschool year round (like we do now) or take summers off, there’s generally a "first day of school" or first day back to work somewhere in there. We hope this list of things we do to get ready and set for back to school are helpful for you, too.
It amazes me that even home schoolers are no more excited about going “back” to school than traditional students! They seem to suffer from back-to-school blues like most kids. Maybe parents are no more excited about the official first day of school than traditional teachers. So what do you do!? Whelp, AFTER you’ve gathered all items on the school supplies list and completed all the typical “ten things to do to prepare for back-to-school” stuff, how about turning your frown upside down. We have five (5) fun, exciting, home school-style, back-to-school activities to get your spirits energized and ready for the new school year!
The Memphis International Airport is quite a unique, interesting hub for our tri-state area (Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi). It borders the headquarters of the “American multinational courier delivery services company,” FedEx! So you know there is activity at, near, on, and around the airport all the time. But did you know that parking at the airport for the first 30 minutes is FREE!? And, did you know that you can not only enjoy watching airplane activity for free at the airport, but there are at least eleven (11) more free (or very inexpensive) activities at your local airport, too!? Let us guide you through your airport exploration. (See this video here.)
One of the most magnificent locations in your town is your local public library! Even if your library is old, has low ceilings and ancient lighting, smells funny, or hasn’t yet been upgraded to modern times, it is STILL one of the most magnificent locations in your town. It naturally, consistently oozes with endless access to FREE information! Information is knowledge, and knowledge is power. But, there is soooooo much more at your library than just your typical books, so much more to engage in than you may realize, so much more to discover, explore, indulge in, and tap into. We are here to help guide you down an enlightening path to discovering more, fun, FREE, exciting, field trip-worthy reasons you should visit your very own public library, TODAY!

What am I? You wouldn’t believe that right within your very own city or town (whether you're in the US Capitol, New York, or Cleveland, Mississippi), there waits a small, inviting, often ignored and overlooked facility that’s more like a diamond in the rough. You probably pass it more often than you realize, and just didn’t know what all lies within the walls of a quaint and cozy building. You’ve probably even “visited” (hint-hint) such a place when you were out of town! What am I? (See the video here.)
