Going to the zoo on the first day of public school.
Tomorrow the local public schools are starting back. I saw lots of parents and excited kids at Target this week, buying last minute this and that. I’ve heard a lot of parents talk about how excited they are to have kids back in school. And kids telling me at church today that they’re so glad to go back because they’ve been bored.
Well, tomorrow we’re going to the zoo. Handsome is taking a half day off of work and we’ll spend in the morning at the zoo. The zoo normally has a ton of school kids but we figure that the first day of school means we’ll have it pretty much to ourselves.
We really want to help Precious understand that homeschooling is fun and one of the advantages is that we get to do fun things during the weekdays instead of waiting until the weekend.
And, for those that are interested, she loves math. Whenever I give her a choice between math, reading, or writing, she always chooses math. But I think part of it is because her math book is very colourful and fun. She likes reading, too, but because she’s only reading short words, the stories get a bit repetitive
