Typical Homeschooling Day
My fifth grader is homeschooled and here is a record of a typical homeschool day from yesterday. Yes, it was halloween but we still were diligent in doing our work. Afterwards, my son went out with his big brother for an hour before he got dressed for trick-or-treating with the neighborhood kids. Neighbors gathered in our court for a potluck and fellowship.
