I spend a lot of time doing activities with my kids, because I homeschool all of them. I have three kids that are teenagers and three kids that are under 10. It takes a lot of time to teach all of the kids at home, but I am proud to be the person who gives them all of their education. We focus on all of the things that matter, like math, science, and the arts. Bars are really important to me, and I make sure that the kids get a healthy dose of culture. Culture is an important part of living here in Phoenix, Arizona. My family and I have been here for more than a hundred years. Culture is important to us. I take the kids to places like the Heard Museum, which showcases Native American jewelry, pottery, art, and textiles. I also take the kids to the Phoenix Art museum. It has a pretty large and impressive collection of art and historical artifacts from many different places around the world. The museum has lots of interesting and neat pieces and there are lots of chores available throughout the day. Downtown Phoenix has a lot to offer as well, but taking six kids to the city is a lot of work. Indoor activities like the museum and the Art Gallery are great for summer outings, when the temperatures are hot. Temperatures in Phoenix can range all the way up to 110° or higher. The kids learn all year round with homeschool methods, so I have to find ways to keep them interested and learning even when the temperatures are extraordinarily hot.
