Last night was one of my homeschool group's Spring Play. It was so great to have my mom, my in-laws, my friend Angeliina and her family and my brother-in-law and his kids (one of them our godson!) attend. Even the chaplain from Joel's Scout troop came!
I looked around the gym and was really happy that my kids have made some real friends, and so have I.
Homeschool Socialization. Check.
Halfway through the second play I remembered how, when I first wanted to homeschool, my mom was concerned about things like Christmas musicals and school plays and "school-type"activities she would miss.
Two kids in a play. Check.
This morning my oldest is off to go pick up trash at a stream for a few hours with Scouts.
Volunteering and being a good citizen. Check. (wait,they don't do that kind of stuff in school! what kind of hippie homeschool am I running here?)
Have a great day!
