Native Lands

 I thought that I would post more pictures from our time at the Native Lands traveling show. We went last Wednesday with 2 other homeschool families. It was held at Bull Run National Park and gave the kids a chance to learn more about Native Indians, Birds of Prey and Animals of the Land.


The Crew

The Crew – Kyle, Jason, Zak, Kaiya, Lachlan, and Axel


Birds of Prey Birds of Prey

The Birds of Prey demonstation was really interesting.


 Zak and Lachlan try it out  Jason tries it out

Kyle tries his luck with the bow and arrow

The biggest hit by far was the archery range.


A cool bison   And even a zebra  Standing next to the HUGE Brahma Bull

They had some really neat animals there…including a Bison, a Zebra and a huge Brahma Bull


War council Don't do it!

We hung around awhile afterwards so the kids could hang out a bit (amazing how quick the place cleared once the school buses left!). We got to talk with one of the animal guys and it was really interesting to hear about how they travel all over the country. Sure must be an interesting life!


About throwingmarshmallows

I am a homeschooling mom to two sweet, energetic boys although I am probably not exactly what you would expect (definitely NOT your stereotypical homeschooler, if there is really such a thing). I support progressive political causes (yes, liberals can and do homeschool!) and I have found a spiritual home in the Unitarian Universalist Church. I have no real idea of how I want to use this blog, but will probably focus on homeschooling, things that I am learning from my boys, personal thoughts and opinions and maybe some liberal politics thrown in, who knows!

    Hi Stephanie,

    I wonder if you could email me about this program? It looks like something I might want to take my kidlets to next year if it comes back.

    I like reading your blog. So much to think about!
