One of Those Home Schooling Days

If I have learned anything in the 7 to 8 years I have been homeschooling it is that there are going to be those days.  You know, the ones where everyone is grumpy, miserable, and nothing is getting achieved.  I have also learned that when this happens it is time to close the books and change course.

We had one of those days last week.  Bear was grumpy as an old... well, bear.  This distracted Buttercup from her reading and Rogue his math.  The older girls were fine... they have little hiding places they like to go to study.  So I called on Daisy to take Bear outside, so I could try and finish one thing with Buttercup.  Then I took her outside.

Rogue brought his reader outisde, too.  So we read in the sunshine, oh how we missed it!  And that was that.  We got our basics done, despite the struggle nd did not push anything.  It was time for a different kind of learning.  It was time for...

BUBBLES!
