Saturday & Sunday
I love our morning Coffee and Books ritual because it’s such an easy and fun way to sneak in learning. . This weekend, the kids are a bit under the weather. September germs have hit and everyone is crabby and sniffly. What they need is some fresh air and an early bedtime. . What they don’t know is that this afternoon we are going to our favorite nature center to see an owl talk and bee demo. These books will get them thinking and talking about both subjects! . What does homeschool look like for you today?
