A homeschooling mom’s day can vary so much!
Today I went
- from making a list of weekly homeschooling goals for Miss 15 to correcting Miss 10’s creative spelling;
- from reading aloud about a back-woods author to watching Victorian farm;
- from admiring a beautifully iced cake to scratching my head over Mr. 17’s physics experiment; and
- from looking for suitable audiobooks with Miss 15 to dragging Miss 12 away from a book well past her bedtime.
- how to sort laundry,
- the necessity of kindling (right now!),
- the importance of eating enough calories at breakfast, and
- retirement benefits for the Pope.
Other topics included
- whether a voice is alto or soprano,
- alternative ways of studying A Beka’s grade 9 health text,
- who gets to study Plato’s Republic (it looks like both teens want to, so they can do it together),
- the disappearance of socks,
- the plagues of Egypt,
- how to mend a torn sleeve, and
- whether or not it is a good idea to limit one’s intake of cake.
And that’s not even getting into the subject matter we were officially studying!
Yes, it was a good day. Peaceful and pleasant. While it was not predictable in a detailed sense, it was totally predicable in its randomness.
Truly, I am so thankful for this wonderful calling of being a homeschool mom!
Did you have a good day too?
