I get wrapped up in the chaos and stress of running a home and unschooling and making the yard neat and trying to keep it all together all the time. And it makes me grouchy. I guess technically I choose to let myself be grouchy about it. So, yesterday I got up and saw the sun shining, and the sky was bright and blue, and it was going to be a beautiful day.
Time for an adventure.
So, we left this.
After four hours of playing in the water, sand and sun, after Mattea fell face-first into the river and I had to throw my camera in the sand to pull her out, and after Ani knocked India tumbling down a hill and landed in the river (Ani, not India)… we dragged our tired bodies to the van. We stopped for slurpees on the way home (because who doesn’t love a slurpee on the first hot day of the year?), and even brought one to Sean at the church.
As we were driving home, a happy Elijah said, “Next time there’s a day like this, I’ll say to Kelly (a friend)….Now is it better to go to school, or to homeschool? ….Because this is way better.”
I agree kid, I love being able to grab the moment. Just because we can.
