November 22

We haven't made it to any homeschool park days. We're skipping the homeschool P.E class too. Spring co-op sounds lovely, but we'll have to pass. You see, I've decided that while we're getting things up and running, we're going to keep the home in homeschool. One of our major motivations for homeschooling was to be able to spend free time together as a family. When the kids were in public school, even the empty calendar days were full. So though getting together with other homeschoolers and networking would be wonderful, it's just not a priority right now. We can't have any enrichment until we have the basics down, IMO. And the basics include a lot more (laughing, playing, movie nights, and read-alouds). All together.


  1. Dee,

    We have been staying closer to home too this school year. Even though I like running here and there and seeing all sorts of things, it has been nice not having to really rush anywhere to be sure we're on time. We still do have a few outside activities, but they are new and instead of adding it to a list, we removed some other activities to add those.

    Family is pretty cool!

  2. We've been hanging out at home lately. Looking forward to Spring co-op though. My oldest can't wait to do school with friends.
    When we do the park days I get there when we can. No more rushing to be on time.

    It feels good to relax and really live at home with the family.
