the revolutionaries will be homeschooled
Wednesday, midday. Moms, jumping off a laddered platform & careening into sand piles. (Zipline) Homemade apple-cinnamon angel cake + gluten-free pumpkin chocolate cookies. Mostly unsupervised hammers. Nails, 2-by-4's. Jars of paint. (Red legs, paint in baby hair) Beeswax candles in walnut shells. Squirrel-bonking. (don't ask) Treasure pouches. Handmade clothes. A pet camera residing 'round every neck. Kids that all know how to use said cameras. Our kind of fun. Our kind of friends.
Conversations that looked like this:
7 year-old on left swing: So have you never even seen a movie?
7 year-old on right swing: I have seen parts of movie.
7 years-olds swing into each other: "Ouch!!" Laughing
I love how homeschoolers tend to listen to learn, not listen to agree or disagree. They get the information & they just be with it. Now they know.
Oh, & the blogs:
amy :: diary of a domestic animal
sarah :: urban. prairie. forest.
molly :: a foothill home companion
tricia :: wonderfarm
tara :: tara.mama.wendy
susan :: in the kitchen
Thank you for a wonderful afternoon, sweet families.
