Eastern VA Fun

My latest post on the HEAV blog was the first part in a four part series about summertime schooling. The first post titled Summertime Schooling In Eastern Virginia is up right now, the next post Summertime Schooling in Central Virginia will be posted on August 12th.

In general we have a fairly relaxing approach to homeschooling during the school year and that roles over into the summertime. The kids attend various camps, Boy Scout Camp, Cub Scout Camp, and Girl Scout Camp, plus we do the summer reading program at the local library.

In my series on Summertime Schooling I list various places throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia.

As we are currently living in PA I thought it might be nice to do something similar on here – however we are going to be traveling to Texas soon so I am not sure if it will be before or after our trip.  Until then, it would be great if you could share some of your favorite places to visit – either here in PA, in VA or wherever you live!

That being said – I am also working on my posts for the HEAV blog – be sure to check it out – and working on each room in turn to get the house ready to put on the market.  We are looking to move somewhere locally, that isn’t on the main road. I would like more than one tree and maybe even a creek.  🙂

So anything in particular that you want to hear about? Want to know more about camping? How about my mission to de-clutter the house room by room? Let me know in the comments and maybe it will be the next post!
