You might be a California homeschooler if. . .
You might be a California homeschooler if...
You attempt to make raisins in your backyard in October. . . and succeed because it's 90 degrees outside.
Or if your kid goes outside in the mid-morning to check out her shadow. . . and you get to tell her all about it. . .
Or you feel like you should by stock in Hobby Lobby or Michael's because you are going through art supplies life CRAZY and you might as well get a few dollars back. . .
You make salt dough . . .
so you can add a homemade sundial (complete with pencil for checking the time) to your backyard collection of odd things you may find in the backyard of a homeschooler. . .
Or you bake cookies in the middle of the day in order to do a sensory letter activity. . . and wind up baking your preschooler's whole name. :-)
All this to say, the first few weeks of homeschooling Claire have gone great! She loves activities, loves art, loves reading, and does pretty well with her introductory math assignments. She doesn't love handwriting. Yet. Daddy teaches her one day a week while I work as a tutor/teacher at a homeschool group and we are all learning how best to teach her and Ashlyn (who sometimes joins in). But we are blessed to be able to do this this year. Taking it one week at a time.
