We’re dabbling in home schooling around here. We started in September and with a few other mamas and their wonderful children, we’ve created a weekly “homeschool club”, as the kids are calling it. Once a week we meet up and concentrate on one thing, usually something nature related and I do an art project, read some related books and then we the kids play afterward. Later in the week, Ellie and I join a bunch of other mamas and do a nature class with our local natural history museum. We’re both enjoying our new routine, learning new things together and getting some time with friends.
