Tossing Aside Our Books

"And if the homework brings you down, then we'll throw it on the fire and take the car downtown"
David Bowie "Kooks"

Really it's not so much that the work is bringing anyone down, actually the kids are giggling as they work on long division together.  But It is a beautiful day and I am feeling the need to be out in nature! 
This wall just isn't cutting it today!

 Isn't that the beauty of homeschooling?  We can just toss our books aside and go outside and just enjoy the world?  I'm pretty sure that most teachers in the public school system would given the choice do just the same.

We're off, I don't know where this adventure will lead, but I'll be sure and let you know!


  1. This is one of the reasons I love homeschooling so much. I hope you all have a wonderful day and I look forward to hearing all about your adventures. xx

  2. I applaud you for doing that! We all need to be outside and enjoy God's gifts from time to time during school. Kids actually learn and retain information better after outdoor free play!!

  3. This is what I like to hear! Sometimes I forget we can do that...


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear comments and try to answer any questions so feel free to tell me what's on your mind!
