Days of Togetherness

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.

  4. I always admire mamas that homeschool their children! Good for you!

    I discovered you over at You Capture and wanted to tell you about The Happiness Project. It's a carnival that I host every Tuesday and all you have to do is post a photo of something that makes you happy. I am trying to take over the blogosphere with happiness.

    Here is a link to last week's post if you want to check it out.

  7. Yes! That is what is so awesome about homeschooling. I loved being able to spend that time with my children. This is our last year as our youngest is a senior, but I am enjoying this time with him!
