We have a busy week this week.
Tomorrow, we are heading to a local park for a craft and snack event with our homeschooling group. After the craft, we’ll be having lunch and just enjoying a nice afternoon at the park. I’m hoping to take the kids kites so they can enjoy some time with them, assuming the wind is right.
Later in the week is my father’s birthday. We’ll be celebrating on Saturday with dinner out, but before that the kids and I will be enjoying a living history lesson at a local state park. They have a village of authentic homes that people in our area lived in well over 300 years ago, and we get to take a tour and learn a bit about how they lived. It”s a unique opportunity that the park only offers about once a year, so we’re determined to take advantage. This means, though, that we need to study a bit of Florida history again, so that this is all in context.
As if that weren’t enough, tonight’s episode of Mythbusters is busting Titanic myths. I had already planned a unit on the Titanic this year, but now with this episode, I have to try to fit in most of the big stuff this week. It helps to have some knowledge of the Titanic before we start busting myths about it, wouldn’t you agree? 🙂
This is going to be quite a week. Florida history, Titanic history, a park day, and also still studying the government and elections.
But, as always, it’s well worth it. The knowledge that my kids will have a well rounded education, learning at their own pace, and enjoying what they’re learning is worth all the effort, all the exhaustion, and all the frustration.
