Fall is a wonderfully fun time for homeschoolers!

There are so many cool projects to do and so many fun places to visit. I thought it would be fun to put together a fall bucket list geared specifically toward homeschoolers.

My family and I plan to try to tackle as many of these as possible and I challenge you to make the most of these fun months and do the same!
