And another school day of game playing ~ here the kids are playing the Wii with a homeschool friend who visits us most Wednesdays. They also played a very active, very noisy outside game with dart guns and teams, in our garden and in our cul-de-sac. Everyone else from the street was at school or work, so the cul-de-sac was theirs’ for the taking!
Don’t worry, we don’t play games all the time in our homeschooling unschool. We do talk and we do read – Anthony is really in to that Battlestar Galactica novel I mentioned yesterday, and he keeps giving us updates on the characters, the relationships, the mystery, the plot, the glossary.
The kids also did Wii Fit – pilates and yoga and strength training was on the menu for yesterday. And practised their piano pieces. And read in their religion books ( on how God is the source of all Grace, of the story of Jacob and Joseph, on the moral conscience ). They did some Kumon maths and I think Alexander did some university work ( Italian). He also ironed the tablecloth and serviettes for dinner, for me!
The kids delivered junk mail and helped me with setting the table for visitors.
Next week is the birthday of one of the friars from our parish and we finished our day with a small birthday dinner party for Br. L. last night.
Yet another unschooling homeschool day ….Live and learn and laugh…
