One of the great things about homeschooling is the flexibility it offers.
Flexibility to be able to put your books away and head outside to play after a day of being trapped in the house by the rain.
Flexibility to tell your kids to go put some already dirty clothes on...
...you know things are going to get dirty.
Very, VERY dirty.*
Andrew's shirt says "who did you think you were saving the planet for?"
Andrew's shirt started off the colour of natural cotton/hemp.
He also started off with a shoe on each foot.
Half an hour of muddy fun later, headed to the backyard for a hose down...
...and to try making a homemade water slide...
...that Andrew decided it might be in his best interests not to try.
While other kids were sitting in desks, bent over notebooks and text, my three were enjoying a warm spring afternoon together.
In a mud puddle.
Following some more water play in the backyard and a warm, soapy bath, we went back to our books to finish up the little bit of school we had left.
Then I did laundry.
