Why I Love Homeschooling #3

We are not tied down to a school or a school schedule.  Last Thursday we took a long anticipated trip to see grandparents in Indianapolis.  We could leave on Thursday rather than waiting for the weekend.  We practiced math by subtracting mile markers from our exit numbers to see how much farther we had to go.   Friday Fritz had "school" at the Indianapolis Childrens Museum with his PaPa.   That evening he showed off his reading skills snuggled next to Grandma (and read more at one time than I can coax him to read during "class").    

On Saturday he got to travel on the local hospital's monorail system.  As a bonus, he got to watch it being repaired for nearly twenty minutes when they got stuck.  Now how many people would have found that a major inconvenience rather than a learning experience?
