Tuesdays. They are not my favorite days. Not because of the day of the week, but because we are on the road for 40 minutes one way to our local homeschool co-op. I love how much the boys are getting out of their art Class (Thanks Ms. Mary), but I just hate driving that far for one class. This is our second year taking art classes and the boys’ skills are improving dramatically. (Remember, I am determined they will not grow up to be an art vacuum like me, so we will soldier through.) However, this Tuesday was different. It was one of those days that remind me of why I love homeschooling.
This morning we worked on their Institute for Excellence in Writing, Student Writing Intensive A. it is really review, but is a great place to start before they leap into major history writing via Trisms. Because it is review, success is almost guaranteed. We love those scenarios! After we finished IEW and lunch, we piled into the car for the drive to co-op. Out of the corner of my eye, I catch a glimpse of the book my nine-year old has in hand. This book.
Blake brought it along for the boys to quiz each other about the elements… for FUN! Have I mentioned lately I LOVE HOMESCHOOLING! I’m sure over the course of writing I’ll end up sharing the other 999,999,999 reasons along the way.
Until next time!
