Free Amazon Kindle eBooks Round-Up

Here’s my weekly round-up of free Kindle ebooks on Amazon! I found many more books: for cooks,  kids, and then miscellaneous books I’m interested in {and since I am a crunchy mama…I’m calling them books for crunchy people!}

If you don’t have a kindle, but have a computer, ipad, or smart phone, head on over to download a Free Kindle App. Or you could go here and buy a Kindle ! Make sure you check the prices as they change quickly on Amazon. While everything was free when I posted, it’s highly likely that they will change!

Walking Boston’s Freedom Trail

Walking Boston's Freedom Trail

One of the things I really love about homeschooling is the flexibility to travel and learn on the road. I have been traveling a lot with my kids this year and think that travel is such a great way for them to learn new things and also learn to appreciate history. I’m always amazed when I hear how many people hate history. I have always loved history, but when I was a child I was lucky enough to travel a lot and learn about history in an authentic and hands-on way – instead of only by fact memorization. I really think one of the reasons I love history so much is because of all the awesome travel experiences I had as a child.

So I am so thrilled that I am able to travel with my own kids and give them some of the same opportunities I had as a kid. My kids and I are in New York right now, staying with great friends who also homeschool. Last week, all of us – 7 kids, 2 moms, and 1 dad – took to the streets to walk Boston’s Freedom Trail. We were quite the sight and my husband made sure to call out to his “wives” several times {in jest, of course}.

Since all 4 of my kids are back to home schooling, and since the hubs and I had business meetings in Boston this fall, I decided it was the perfect time for us to study the American Revolution.  In preparation for our trip to Boston, we’ve been reading books, learning about the history of the period, and reading about influential revolutionary Americans. To really bring it all home and make the learning experience more authentic and memorial, we also headed to Boston for some experiential learning.

Walking Boston’s Freedom Trail

Boston’s Freedom Trail, if you’ve never heard of it, is a 2.5 mile walk around downtown Boston – marked by either red bricks in the sidewalks, or painted red lines. All you have to do is follow the red brick road for a hands-on and interactive tour of 16 famous Revolutionary War sights!

Tuesday Garden Party #TGP – Garden Inspiration for 10.14.14

Happy Tuesday! Last Saturday, I packed up my kids and we drove out to New York. My husband and I have business meetings later this week in Boston and I have a great friend who agreed to keep my kiddos while we’re in our meetings. Then, she’s bringing all the kids to Boston and we’re going to tour around a bit. We’ve been studying the American Revolutionary War in our homeschool this year, so we decided to take the homeschooling on the road.

It’s absolutely beautiful out here in Central New York. The trees are so many different colors and the weather is nice and cool. I love it! And I can’t wait to see Boston. I’ve never been there and I’ve read about some pretty amazing gardens that we intend to visit!

But today, it’s Tuesday Garden Party time… so let’s get started.
