homeschooling doesn't have to be hard...
days like today help me remember that homeschooling doesn't have to be hard.
isaac had his garden journal outside while i was digging a garden bed. i dug up a clover and we found a 21 inch tap root! he recorded it in his garden journal (drawing a picture and adding the measurement) and we spent a good chunk of time reading about different kinds of clover and finding that a man in Lincoln NE who did research about clover and found a Red Clover that grew a tap root over 9 feet long!
this mornings, Christian had a question out of the blue (as most of his questions seem come).
Christian - "mom, are all armies good guys?"
and so followed a discussion of how all are sinners, how the same country can sometimes fight for good (things that line up with God's Word) and sometime let their selfishness take over and fight for wrong. various examples drawn from the revolutionary war and WWII.
and that concludes our history lesson for the day.
see? homeschooling really isn't that hard. ;)
