Other Spaces

Homeschool is a misnomer.  Sure we do math here, and grammar and some science, but a lot of the best stuff happens outside of home, from private art classes, to hanging with the other Urban Homeschoolers, searching for squirrels in the park, or fine-tuning the art of rotating a tire swing - learning is everywhere.  Here are a few highlights from the past week, from everywhere but "home" school:

After lamenting the removal of his beloved roadwork LED signs, Liam learns to read them for the "ending date" of the work

Dad and Liam play at trench warfare in the newly excavated front lawn, during our landscaping project

Liam grabs a pair of binoculars and we feed squirrels in the park across the street

He used to need someone to wind him up, now he's figured out how to get himself to really spin
