Wrapping It Up....


We are finishing up a big winter study that started a while back with the winter FIAR books and ending shortly with the end of the Iditarod dog sled race.


We have had so much fun!  We I love this race so very much.  I have tried for years to get my children involved with my love for Alaska and the dogs with very little success.  They enjoy the study because of the fun books and movies, but when it's over.....well, I just don't understand! 


This year, I actually had one child get really involved with me.  My 10 year old eagerly checked the race updates, went through the daily update newsletter, asked about the checkpoints, etc.  Heaven!


We I chose 3 mushers to follow this year:  Jeff King, Martin Buser and Mitch Seavey.  All 3 finished in the top ten, so not bad!


We actually put together our very first ever lapbooks.  I used a variety of sources, but the main idea came from homeschoolestore.com. 


We will be finishing this study, hopefully Monday, maybe Tuesday and then I'll post some pictures and more details.
