Most of the time we take artwork the kids have made. This year we had planned to take some projects they are working on for 4-H. My 15 year old has been making decoupage art for her wall, and my 9 and 6 year olds are painting wooden initials for their walls.
Except, just as we were about to leave, my boys headed out to feed goats and found this ...
Needless to say, we didn't make it to the Homeschool Fine Arts Fair. Instead, we tried to slow down the fire with a hose while waiting for the fire trucks to arrive. I guess my kids got a real life lesson on rural fire service and fire safety instead. Four hours later, seven small fire trucks, and a front loader ... and it was controlled for the night. We have neighbors who will be helping keep an eye on the still-smoldering section that was separated from the rest of the tree pile (remnants of removing a treeline that separated two fields).
And that's part of our real life homeschool in the country.
