I wanted to share a neat opportunity for homeschoolers in the Nashville, TN area. Kingdom Academy of the Arts provides one day events such as Pioneer Day, Indian Day, and Harvest Day as well as an Enrichment Program. The Enrichment Program is the next event on their calendar. Your children spend a day on a farm once a week for 12 weeks from 9:00-2:30 learning about nature, animals, art, poetry, scripture memory, raising and caring for farm animals, games, etc. My kids attending Enrichment this past spring and had a blast! Here is more info on from an email:
