Homeschooling to me is a mixture of experiences. Some experiences come from books, some come from living life. Friday we decided to do some living and went to a homeschool group function at Pizza Hut. I'm pretty sure I smiled the whole time. Seeing a bunch of kids all hanging out, coloring, laughing, eating pizza, treating each other nicely...it's just awesome. And the moms were nice too. So after about four months here in Dallas, I think we have our homeschool group. I hope they know what they're getting into, haha.
I also took the time to direct some clean up of the house. I sometimes feel like we should have a cleaner home because we're in it all the time. However, if I spent all my time cleaning, homeschooling would go right out the window. So we try to balance the cleaning with the learning.
Then Eric took us out for dinner at a sushi restaurant. Eli, the expert of dumplings, approved of the restaurant. The sushi was great (veg rolls for me, if you were curious how a vegan eats sushi), and it was a lot of fun. After that, a trip to a store for some vacation clothes and shoes.
I like busy days like Friday. Good times.
