Grand Canyon, Book of Knights, Free Medical Care

Every week the History Channel sends me shows, and curriculum links that I can use in my homeschooling adventures. Tonight at 8PM is How the Earth was made: Grand Canyon. I already have it set to record. If you go to their website History.com and sign up they will send you curriculum links, and upcoming programs. America the History of Us, the one I really want, will be airing April 25th, and it is a new series. So you will have to record multiple shows to get them all.

One of the many things I love about homeschooling, is that I can change curriculum, assignments, schedules, or anything else I think needs improving, or changing. DJ has been reading The Silver Skates, and he absolutely hates it. So I decided to change the remainder of our reading list, and exclude that one. I do not finish a book I do not finish, so I see no reason to make him. The remainder of our reading list will be:

The Barefoot Book of Knights: which includes 7 stories about Knights, from all over the world. If you would like to purchase this book for your child, you can go to my Barefoot store. It is on sale for only 5.99 and their books are award winning.

Black Beauty

Sword of the Rightful King, a novel of King Arthur.

If you need free medical care, it is now available every Monday, in Gainesville, FL at the Mobile Clinic. The details are every Monday from 6 PM to 9PM at the Tower Road Branch Library 3020 SW 75th Street, Gainesville, FL. The Mobile Clinic is a bus, and is volunteer for medical students, doctors, and undergraduates from UF College. It says your medical records will be computerized, and any doctor you may see after can have easy access to them. If you need free medical care, this is a great option for you. I am sure the lines will be long, so be sure to get there early.

Great post Miss Melissa! I love the information about the History channel. I didn't realize they would send you curriculum emails and such. Also, thanks for letting me know about the free medical care bus in Gainesville. I have some people I know that could use it very much.

I love your posts about the History Channel. I should definitely take better advantage of it.

I agree...life is to short (and too full of good books) to waste your time on bad ones. Thanks for the History Channel and Barefoot Knights tips!!

Wow - Thanks for the Free Medical Care Link! I will be passing that on to everyone that will listen!
I've gotta check out your books (you know I kinda like books!LOL)
Blessings, Laura

Ms Kristy you are very welcome, exactly why I posted it.

Anne, it really is a great resource, especially since it is kind of boring to just read about it.

Jill, I agree there are so many books, why read ones you don't like.

Laura, you are welcome so many people need it. The books are awesome, and yes I know you love books LOL.
