We recently drove up Palomar Mountain to check out the newly refurbished watch tower at Boucher Hill.  Beautiful place for a field trip! To the southwest, over 4,500 feet below you, lies the verdant Pauma Valley. Equally amazing views to the north, west, and southeast: Santiago Peak to the northwest, Cuyamaca Peak to the southeast, and the Pacific Ocean, including the Coronado Islands to the west. This tower is pivotal in the so-cal fire defense system, we learned so much from the volunteer docent/firefighter while we visited. Thinking about the firefighters on watch right now, waiting for signs of fire to alert fire crews. May their eyes be sharp, these Santa Ana winds die down and the fires that are burning be contained quickly. Stay safe southern California! #CAFires #fieldtripjournals #homeschool #homeschooling #homeeducation #cahistory #SanDiego #boucherhill

Watching the water level rise so dramatically was incredible. You can just see the top of the fence that lines the usually dry hiking trail. Rising sea levels+ changing coastlines+super moon+the tides = Science by the Sea.

Exploring Carlsbad Beach. Even a stroll on the beach turns into a  homeschool day. Topics covered; sustainable energy, the bluffs as a habitat, erosion, engineered shorelines and of course... what we will have for lunch.🌊❤️🌊 #homeschooling #sandiego #homeeducation #homeschool #Carlsbad #coastalexplorerspress #fieldtripjournals #betterthanatextbook #lifeisourclassroom
Even the buildings can teach and inspire us. Fresh morning air and being surrounded by educational inspiration... THIS is the way to start a homeschool day! #getthedaystartedright #homeschoolmominspired #coastalexplorerspress #sandiego #cahistory #balboapark #homeschooling #fieldtripjournals #betterthanatextbook#homeschool #homeeducation #museumofmansandiego
Prettiest ship on land. USS Neversails. Liberty Training Center at Liberty Station. Love living in a Navy town. #coastalexplorerspress #sandiego #pointloma #libertystation #homeschooling #homeeducation #cahistory #ussneversails
Love seeing what kids write/draw in the "I kept thinking" prompt!
Exploration. Reflection. Expression. Journaling that kids WANT to do!
