We checked out Wupatki National Monument while we were a few miles away at Sunset Crater which is nearby. It is also near the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. We often do some traveling with our friend Ashley and her family from a Day in the Life of Mom . Wupatki is located at 25137 N Sunset Crater-Wupatki Loop Rd Although the website said they take debit and credit card only, we had our pass for every fourth grader goes free (please see our Sunset Crater Post for that story). Wupatki is Hopi for “Tall house”. From different sites, I found that people gathered here around 1100, about 100 yea ..read more

Sunset Crater

Sunset Crater is located close to i40 in Flagstaff and is a must see. Sunset Crater is part of the National Parks Service and is part of the every Fourth Grader Goes free. My husband is also classified as a Disabled Veteran and he can get into the parks for free (and Gold Star Families can too).

But, I wante ..read more

Are you thinking about homeschooling this year? Or have you been homeschooling for a while and need a new source of books? I buy a lot of my workbooks and schoolbooks on Amazon, but I needed another source for books. I remembered that my high school vocabulary books were really a great resource. I tried to find the books (Shostak) on Amazon without any luck, but then I came across Thriftbooks. Many of you may have already heard of Thriftbooks, so you might be rolling your eyes at me. I had vaguely heard of it, but dismissed it. This is a used book seller and many of the books are out of print ..read more
