Homeschooling means connecting during breakfasts instead of speedy swallows and rushing quickly out the door. This morning, we had a surprise visitor.
We learned it was a red-tailed hawk, and that they can be trained as hunters for falconry if they are passage hawks. We learned that passage hawks are less than one year old hawks who have left the nest. We also learned that falconry is a sport where trained raptors hunt for humans. Then we learned that raptors aren't just extinct dinosaurs, they are also birds of prey.
Homeschooling means music can be played and enjoyed by all ages anytime throughout the day. See?
Homeschooling can also mean as a mother, you get to weather through your children's least favorite subject with them, and you usually experience more moodiness than they'd probably throw at an unfamiliar teacher.
But it also means you get to enjoy recesses, too. And recesses can be in the form of gardening, trampoline jumping, or teatime outdoors. Or anything you want it to be. And it is together.
I like being together.
