Our life in books

This is our eigth year of homeschooling and I finally got around to blogging about our adventures a few years ago.
I love the path that God has us on.
We get to enjoy the lightbulb moments in educating our children and have quite a few of them ourselves.

We are starting Exploration to 1850's this school year, 2012-2013 using My Father's World curriculum.
Rome to the Reformation,
Exploration to the 1850's and NOW.........

Below is the week by week of lessons for this year if you'd like to start at the beginning.
There is also a handy LABELS area that you can peek through to find a specific lesson.

JPL - Jet Propulsion Laboratory Tour

Jet Propulsion Laboratory ( JPL)
 Such a mysterious and fascinating place.
I have always wanted to see what happens here and after living in Pasadena for 15 years, I finally got the chance.
Our homeschool group from CA church went together to tour the 

 This was the entrance to the clean room you see below.

We were able to observe the scientists assembling parts for a satellite that would launch in 2014.
The satellite will measure and map Earth's soil moisture.

SMAP assembly taking place before our eyes.

We had a closeup view of the Mars Curiosity Rover built right here at JPL and launched in 2011.

 This is Mission Control ( not Houston ) for manned space missions but for all other satellite monitoring around the world.
