Jake (finally-we signed up back in October) started volunteering at the library! And we just found out he can earn a merit badge for Scouts in reading and part of it is 4 hours of volunteering at a library! He doesn't think it is all that fun but he has found some cool books he probably never would have otherwise. I think it is pretty fun. I am going to be a name badge next time since I am doing it too. :)
After volunteering we can always hang out in the Teen Room. It is pretty empty during the day.
Enough said....Except I will add that he was so excited when he read about Einstein's theory of gravity. Getting excited about learning is cool.
This particular collage is:
Jake's shadow was an arrow, racking at Nee and Papa's, playing the guitar, reading and studying all things Ivanhoe, reading some more and making a mess....Those are all things homeschooling because we always are....You can and do learn anywhere at any time!
I am glad I am posting these pictures from the week before last (....I am in perpetual catch up mode and I am starting to come to grips with it....), because this past week had me shaking my head wondering why we torture ourselves homeschooling....And then I repeat to myself: divine invitation, divine invitation....We are doing this for a reason. The reason this week was not clear. Maybe so next week (which is going to be awesome...no particular reason why-just that is has to be) will seem even better! :)
