Homeschooling: It's not what we do, it's how we live.

This week…

We’ve been out of pocket for most of this week. I love that phrase, “out of pocket”. It makes me happy. Anyway – Monday, we were home – a normal day, if you will. It was so nice outside, so we spent a lot of the day outside. The boys have a couple of small tents that they’ve had for years. They asked to set them up, so we did.

Tuesday, LittleBoyBlue had a doctor’s appointment, so we went to that in the morning and then had school in the afternoon. It was rainy all afternoon, so we were kinda trapped.

Today is Wednesday, playgroup day, so we went to that this morning. A reporter from the local newspaper called and asked if she could come talk to our group’s moms about babywearing. Our group is pretty AP-centered (attachment parenting). We have lots of breastfeeding moms who are also into things like babywearing, co-sleeping, cloth diapering or elimination communication, homeschooling, making their own baby food,  have vaccine-free kiddos – that kind of thing. It’s always nice to have an opportunity to talk about things like that in the local media, and it’s really nice to have so many of our moms come out to support things like that.

This afternoon, we went for a bike ride and then tried to have school outside, but after half an hour of “getting situated” with no “finally comfy” in sight, I made the boys go inside and finish their work at their desks.

After that, it was chore time (cleaning their room, again…) and dishes, which they did for the first time. we’re dishwasher-less, so it’s really a case of doing the dishes. They did a pretty good job!

This evening, I’m watching my Loverly Husband do laundry and sweep. It’s kinda sexy.

I have some pictures from the last week or so that I’ll add later on.
