Homeschooling on weekends.

I know it’s Sunday.  Most families in the school systems count the weekends as days off.  They deserve those days off.

School system families spend so much time apart from one another working under the control of some unknown, distant, superintendent clock watcher.  We, on the other hand, get to see lots of each other and can complete our work quickly with relatively few interruptions.  So school on the weekend is not a big deal. It’s not like we unplug our brains for two days.  Learning still happens whether we record it or not!

The kids have decided to have recorded school this weekend.  Which really amounts to doing some math and recording the reading they’d be doing anyway.  I think they made the decision, in part, because Dad is working this weekend.  No shift in his routine means no shift in the kids’ routine.  So we get two extra days of recorded school and “summer” comes that much sooner!
