The week in review

Again, I am finding how easy it would be to never be home as a homeschooler. We have been keeping ourselves quite busy.

Monday we went to the Como Planetaruim for "The Sky." Mr. Brinkman was FANTASTIC! He kept the kids involved and active. There was movement (which is great for kiddo, who likes to move while he is learning!) and he threw in a good deal of humor. I can't wait to go back.

Thursday we participated in a Read for the Record event. Afterward we went to the park and played for well over an hour, then went for our daily walk.

Friday we went to Cedar Summit Dairy with a homeschool group, followed by nearly 3 hours at the park playing and having a picnic.

Saturday we were lucky enough to have access to The NASA Vision for Space Exploration Experience, which was deemed worthy of the 45 minute wait in line by Kiddo. We also saw a bald eagle, peregrine falcon, and great horned owl from the Raptor Center, and watched Physics Force explain better toilet papering through physics, among other things.

Sunday saw us picking apples at the orchard, after the rain had passed.

In amongst all of that, there was all of the regularly scheduled stuff to do! I am beginning to think we should call it "School on the road!"
