…especially dads who put in time playing with their kids. My husband used to get down on the floor and play with our little ones when he came home from work. Sometimes they’d chase each other around the house. And right now, my husband is playing videogames with our 19-year-old. Here’s a dad who already has the right idea!
Today was my first day back to homeschooling after a 2.5 month vacation.
Ok, so it was a working vacation, as I spent the time finishing my new book. My husband took over my teaching duties, and I have to say that he did a great job. Josh got to make a life-size human skeleton (complete with organs and muscles) out of paper. (My husband is very artistic.) They also made several different animal and car models and did a study of bird anatomy that included making several lovely paintings.
Unfortunately for Josh, I’m not that creative. Over the weekend, he was actually pretty excited about doing school with me again today. But after a morning spent doing math, practicing sight words and writing thank-you notes for his birthday gifts, he must have decided that he hadn’t missed much. His first comment at lunch was “When are we taking a break again?”
