This week was so much fun. It was full of so many activities, that the kids and I barely had any time at home. Lucy did a bit of math and some grammar, and she read a lot of supplemental history literature, mostly in the car to and from activities. We went on two field trips this week with our homeschool group. On Monday we saw a play of the book, Are You My Mother? and then toured a local newspaper office. And on Thursday we saw a play of Charlotte's Web, and then went to a local children's museum where we got to ride on their new carousel! The kids had all their usual activities as well: preschool, swim and gym, dance, and playdates.
Then today we went shoe shopping, which ended up taking several more hours than I had planned. As the kids and I sat in a local hamburger joint and ate lunch together today, I felt (probably too puffed up with) pride at how good their manners were, and pleased by how much fun we've been having together. This is one of the biggest reasons why I homeschool -- as we get to know each other better and better as the years go by, we enjoy each others company more and more. I wonder if this would be different if the kids spent most of their time at school. Of course, it also helps that my youngest is almost 4 years old now, and I don't have to worry about changing diapers or chasing a toddler around museums any more!
