This week, I am sharing glimpses of our "unschooling life" and how we live and learn each day. What does your homeschooling week look like?
2 A.M. sounds like a great time to be awake for a couple of hours, at least if you're a three-year-old, which also meant that my one-year-old wanted to join in on the fun (one of the admitted downsides to co-sleeping). As a result of the late-night party, the three of us "slept-in" to 7:30, while my five-year-old, asleep in another room, awoke at her usual earlier time. I must admit that waking up to the sight of her reading quietly on the living room couch made my late-night grouchies disappear.
Later in the morning, we walked through Harvard Yard, abuzz with preparations for tomorrow's Commencement. I had some errands to run in Harvard Square and then we were planning to catch the bus to meet some homeschool friends at a park just out of town.
Bus delays and a potty emergency conspired to derail those plans, so instead we spent much of the day at one of our city playgrounds, where the sprinklers and water troughs have already been turned on for the summer. Sand and water, sand and water... is there anything better for childhood play?
That's a nice thing about city homeschooling: if Plan A doesn't work out, Plan B is great too.... especially if it involves ice cream.
Hope you had a nice Wednesday!
