What history sources do you like to use in your homeschool curriculum? .
Today Emmett and I went to the book store to chose his history books for this next school year. Emmett loves the Who? What? Where? books by WhoHQ. So this year we are going to focus more on US history. We’ve done a lot of world history studies of Ancient Civilizations and the Middle Ages using the Story of the World which is great! We will probably recycle that curriculum and study it more in depth throughout the year as well.
We call him Shadow-man. Actually no we don’t, at all. We call him AWZ Ashton Whitney Zubal and amongst the shadows he is not. Ashton is our resident idea man and Farm Manager. Ever the constant researcher, he dreams (calculates?)big for himself, his family, humanity and this earth (and beyond, really). The idea of Farmstock was his. He and Michelle invited Nick and I out to dinner at Brooklyn Star to do his pitch. Four years ago, we started on a vertical farming path...farming of the future. We have much to share about Farmstock and our ultimate goal. Most of it you can find in Ashton’s leather-bound Idea Notebook, with fresh entries all day all night for his brain does not sleep.

What’s the weirdest way you would read a book?
-While walking backward 🚶♂️⏪.
-While juggling with one hand 🤹♀️.
-While riding an alligator 🐊.
Any way you read it, #TheManWhoWalkedBackward by Ben Montgomery is a remarkable and quirky slice of Americana! (On sale 9/18/18)
Founded in 1889
Survived the #greatdepression without one family being on welfare. Eventually, the town became abandoned in 2004. Rough times eventually happened, and now known as a isolated ghost town.
I sure hope to visit the town another time, as I want to explore it at night.
But in the future, I'll come back, and take more pictures!
This afternoon we drove up to the Timberline Lodge at Mt. Hood. This was a WPA project that employed over 500 men and women. President Roosevelt dedicated the lodge on Sept. 28, 1937. The local artists and craftsmen employed by this WPA project truly captured the spirit of the mountain. (I’ll post more photos of the amazing interior.) #lovewpalandmarks
Od @thebeastlovesbeauty - slovenské top blogerky na téma #prirodnakozmetika ...mimochodem spolu s @biotiful.sk moje nejoblíbenější sk blogerky...které FAKT VĚDÍ 💜 pátrají po složení, ignorují mastek (#talc ) a orientují se. Holky, díky za tohle, děláte to skvěle - a mnohem, mnohem déle, než já !!! 💜 @thebeastlovesbeauty Barborka zkoušela @axiology_beauty - jo, měla ji ode mě, přiznáváme 😉😛 - a odstín i rtěnka seděly. Och 😍 S majitelkou #axiology se znám. I s lidmi kolem značky. Mimo jiné - měly jsem první dny mé zahraniční cesty (než jsem zahučela do pralesa) i mnohá jednání, kde se řešila výroba,odstíny...a tak. S většinou dodavatelů se znám a tak i když Axiology nemá kromě certifikace od #PETA certifikaci #prirodnikosmetika , vím...jak to tam vypadá uvnitř ☺️ a jo, je trochu dražší - a pokud americký prezident bude dál kazit mezinárodní obchod, čeká nás v mnohém navýšení cen. Teď ještě za 850.-, crayonky za 750,- 🙂 a mysleme taky, když už jsme u tématu, na to, co zapříčinilo #greatdepression v minulém století. 🙂
Portrait of my family taken around 1932. At that time my family was struggling, due to the effects of the Great Depression. My father worked in a lumber yard but was soon let go when the banks started closing. That's when we packed up all our possessions into my dad's beat up little truck and moved to Idaho where my parents were sharecroppers on a potato farm. The little girl on the left is me. #family#parents#greatdepression#potatofarm#idaho#littlenancy
Lennie and George are migrant workers during the Great Depression. When the novel opens, they're on their way to work on a ranch in Salinas, California. Instead of going straight to the ranch, they camp by the river for the night and talk about their dream of one day having their own ranch. 3 out of 5🌟🌟🌟 #books#classic#love#ofmiceandmen#farm#greatdepression#california
