City Kids, Country Kids

As much as we adore the city, trips to our lake house provide a welcome change of scenery and a host of new adventures.

Today we spent some time doing impromptu math problems at the beach inspired by the mallards and ducklings who floated by (i.e., 2 groups of 3 ducklings equals how many, if mama duck had two more babies, how many babies would she have, etc.). I also let M choose her own chapter book at the bookstore, and she wouldn't let the day pass without us finishing it.

I am still very much a "city mouse" at heart, but I am thankful that homeschooling allows us to spend beautiful Tuesdays in May learning in the country.
