Currently we do our school at the dining room table. I am not in love with using this space for school but it is the best place we have for now. Future plans are being made to transform the back play room into a school room but that probably won't be complete until next year.
Monday - Friday from 8-3 this is usually what my dining room looks like.
Books, pencils, crayons, usually paper scraps and almost always a glass of tea that I have yet to finish.
It was beautiful Monday. The windows were open the breeze was blowing and I just couldn't take it any more.
"Let's get out of here"
I only had to say it once, within minutes they had their shoes on and were ready to go.
We kept walking, laughing and talking, pausing to watch a squirrel playing in a tree.
Then Marissa noticed why the squirrel was hanging around, so we collected a few that obviously ended up in my pocket.
It was lovely. The perfect start to our week and such an awesome reminder of the flexibility that comes with homeschooling.
With some fresh air in my lungs returning back to that table didn't seem so bad at all.
