Every once in a while I give y'all a peek into our homeschooling world. Some days are way more laid back than others. Today is one of those days. A day where the kids have no idea that what they are doing is schoolwork. I personally think these are my favorite days.
I handed Lindsay and Ryan a pad of paper and a pencil and threw them outside. They were charged with the task of identifying how many different plants are growing in our backyard. (We have an abundance of weeds this year) They think this is an exciting game! They get to be in the backyard! And they get to DRAW! What they don't realize is they are learning. Learning about classifying things and noticing details. I also told them to feel free to come up with names for the ones they don't know, which is great for fostering their creative sides.
It also gets them out of the house so I can get laundry done. Win-win!
