London Bridges

London BridgesAccording to the thermometer, it is over 70 degrees out right now.  That causes a major problem. No one, including the teacher, really wants to do book work today.  Playing outside is so much more fun!

We compromised. We did history and Bible in the living room with the windows wide open. Everyone worked on their math outside.  Adrian finally got to dissect his flowers–he called it butchering!– while sitting on the porch steps. Audrey practiced close up flower photography. The kids practiced their soccer skills and then played London Bridges.  They practiced their social skills by running over to visit our neighbor. While I read out loud, the kids enjoyed lunch outside.  They tried to persuade me to have quiet time outside too, but I vetoed that because the ground is still wet from yesterday’s rain.

I am so thankful that school does not always have to be behind desks in a class room.  We were able to get a lot of book work done this morning. This afternoon we will finish it up and spend more time enjoying the beautiful weather God has given us today.
