So. Cal. Home school

Julie has been away for several days. That means that I get to do the lion’s share of home-school with Joseph and Micah. Home school on Wednesday reminded again of how much I love California. On Wednesdays Joseph and Micah have an “academic” day. That doesn’t mean that the other days are not academic, it means that they get to go to an actual classroom and learn from a different teacher. Well, Micah had a class from 9:30am to 11:30am then Joseph had a class from noon to two. The meeting place is about a 30 minute drive from our house so it is not worth it to return home while one of them is in class. Luckily, there is a park next to the class meeting place. But, it is November 5th, we can’t study outside….Ahhh but this is Southern California.

Above, Joseph does his math next to the lake. To the left, he is sitting at a bench taking a break from history to talk to a crow in a tree.

Joseph and I enjoyed a splendid morning of math and history by the lake. After lunch with Micah, Joseph went to class and Micah and I enjoyed a lovely afternoon of the “War of 1812”, “Supreme Court” and the concept of “Checks and Balances” by the lake. I miss Odessa, but I love this place.
Finally, here is a picture of my with Dave Tucker last November in Odessa.
