When I look back at homeschooling the past 6 years, there are several memories that stand out:
- Traveling to Chicago with just the girls.
- Our New York City day for Harriet the Spy
- Our very first not back to school day.
- Classes at the Audubon
- Our mega group share of fairy tales in writing group
These are just a few. So many more came to mind, like having a tour when my mom used to work for West Elm, traveling to Plymouth Plantation, Romeo and Juliet at Hudson Valley Shakespeare, Marine Science Consortium, etc.
These things all have something in common. They are all experiences. It is very hard to have an experience with your nose inside of a textbook. This spring the girls took a class that most certainly is part of this list. Art Glass Fusion. It took Grace 10 hours to complete this project. Lilah’s needed slightly less time. The results are spectacular and will hopefully last a lifetime.
