Finally, A Field Trip!

Pin It Now! Well, I have been a resident of Arizona for 3 years and have just now joined a home school group. Didn't have a car when we first moved out here, so I knew it would be pointless to search for a group. Then, after about 6 months we were given a car, but I was just too overwhelmed with the move to bother.

Once I felt sort of at home here, I began searching on and off but just couldn't find what my heart desired. Then, we were back to one car again, so I quit searching. Blah, blah, blah.

I admit, too, that I just got comfortable doing my own thing without any interruptions. Plus, I am somewhat of a homebody and have to make myself get out sometimes, especially if it involves meeting new people. I love being social; I just dread the getting started part.

I just love how God used bloggyland to find us the perfect group at just the perfect time!!

A new home school mom was led to my blog through a google search, and she contacted me. We only live like 20 minutes apart from one another but probably would have never met had it not been for the internet connection. To make a long story short, we ended up meeting not too long ago (we both have boys around the same ages), and she invited me to join her home school group. And last Monday, I was finally able to meet the rest of the group for the first time at the New York Pizza Department!!!

You'll be able to tell by my children's faces just how much we enjoyed this field trip. I met a wonderful group of parents and felt really welcomed!! Thanks Amy!!!!

The boys had a blast socializing with other home schooled kids. I think they had forgotten just how fun a home school group could be.

Ooooh, the freezer was so cold. Shiloh quickly made some friends, too.

The kids get behind-the-scenes-pizza-making training.

They really liked seeing dough being thrown into the air!

Time for sauce, and the kids were able to help top the pizza with cheese. They got to eat that pizza--it was not served to customers!! :)

Playing with pizza dough while waiting for their pizza to cook.

NYPD had amazing service and delicious pizza, and we all had such a good time.

That is so totally awesome! We love our homeschool group. It makes the homeschool experience so much for fun - for all 3 my kids and me : -)

I am thrilled that you and your kids had a good time. My boys loved it, too!

It was great getting to know you better and sharing the experience. I know the other mom's (and families) were excited to meet you. I hope you will plan on joining in the fun the next time we meet. I think that will be our Christmas get together, the first week in December.
