Write Around Town was a concept that came to me suddenly. The girls have a few stories they have been working on that I would like to see finished. Lilah is still working on her story from the fall which is 17 chapters and 16 pages long! I thought it would be fun to write around town, visiting a new location with our beach blanket, a snack, and our journals.
An email was sent out on our homeschooling yahoo group to see if any other local homeschoolers would like to join in.
- We wrote in the children’s department of our library.
- We wrote in the cafe at Barnes & Noble.
- We wrote at the beach.
- We made a new friend.
Making a new friend was the highlight of this week. The girls did accomplish my goal of moving their stories one step closer to completion, but while this was taking place, a new relationship was being created. That is pretty cool to witness.
This is why I homeschool. It is not always easy. There are times when you have to make things happen. You have to put forth the time and the effort and think outside the box. Sometimes it is a flop. But sometimes it is pure bliss.
