Spring has finally arrived in the Shenandoah Valley! We had temps up in the 80s this week, and of course the kids were loving it, and not so much loving their school books. So I decided to pep things up a bit by moving our “classroom” to the backyard. We spread blankets on the grass, and soaked up some sunshine while doing math and history. Now the kids are loving it! I think I’ll continue this as long as the weather is warm enough. Maybe it’s just what we need to push us to the finish line for this school year.
Even our cat was excited about being outside!! He dashed up the tree just as I snapped this picture. 🙂
Reading and narrating from the branches of our walnut tree.
Carmen took her button stringing activity outside, too. Then she just had fun running around the yard barefoot and finding snails in the flowerbed.
So if your homeschool routine needs a pep talk, I’d encourage you to try taking it outdoors. Your kids will love you for it!
