Joys of Homeschooling (this week at least!)

This week I was reminded of many of reasons I love to homeschool. 

I love watching Kory, who is in 1st grade, learn.

I love learning with him.

I love watching Cade, who is 2 1/2, learn with his brother.

I love that Kory is getting better at reading and chooses to read on his own.  One day he was supposed to be cleaning his room. Instead I heard, “Mommy, can I read a story to my brother?”  I couldn’t refuse.  As I worked in a different room, I could hear the boys laughing together over the story Hot Dog.

I love how Cade enjoys being with us for school. “I do school too, mommy.”  He will curl up with us while Kory is reading one of his books to me.  He will run up to the table and say, “Mommy, I do science too.”  Whether it is math, science, language arts, history, Cade is usually close by with worksheets of his own to work on. 

Now other times he is a typical 2 1/2 year old who would rather be goofy and disrupt his brother from school.  There are many times we have to take breaks because of a strong case of giggles brought on by Cade.

I love how I am learning about Greek mythology.  Over the past two weeks, I  have learned what “The Midas Touch” means and how a golden apple played a part in the Trojan War.  Why didn’t I ever learn this in school?

And I enjoyed watching my boys play together and with others on a fun little outing we had this week.

What a great homeschooling week we have had.  Hopefully next week will be just as great!
