Not Back-to-School Picnic

August 2016

Our Not Back-to-School Picnic will be Friday, August 5, 2016 from 10 am-2 pm pm EST at Southside Park in Phenix City, AL on Sandfort Rd. We'll be set up at the picnic pavilions for lunch and lots of information about the upcoming year. this year's location has a great playground, splash pad, basketball courts, tennis courts, a creek and lots of shade. You don't want to miss this!

Why do we call it that? Well, it's because this is our opportunity to celebrate together that we ARE NOT sending our children off to school. We are choosing to educate them at home and support each other along the way. This picnic is a great time to find out all the details on this year's activities with Freedom Homeschoolers. We'll have lots of sign up sheets for activites for all ages. Don't miss this great time of fellowship. We'll have things for preschool to high school.

This year we are changing up our picnic. Freedom Homeschoolers will be providing hotdogs and we are asking you to bring the sides and a drink. We are also having a Chili Cook Off. Bring your homemade chili to enter in our contest for the best chili recipe. EVERYONE NEEDS TO SIGN UP TO BRING A SIDE DISH AND A DRINK. Chili Cook Off entries are OPTIONAL and in addition to whatever side you bring. We will have prizes for the top 3 chilis.

We are also having our first ever Bake Off! Do you have a delicious dessert recipe? Enter your dessert in our Ultimate Baking Challenge- Homeschool Edition at this year's Not-Back-To-School Party. Enter your desserts for judging at the pavilion from 10 -11 am. We will have categories for adults and students for presentation and taste. Prizes for the winners and everyone gets to enjoy the delicious entries.
