We met the day after Hurricane Irene hit, so there were three families this time around. It was the perfect reason to leave our powerless and waterless house.

Things I love about being around friends and homeschooling:
Being around friends - having the support and knowledge.
Loving the environment - nurturing and loving.
Things that are challenging about being around friends and homeschooling:
Those darned kids are more apt to run off and play than to sit down and do their work!!!
And bee stings... being outside really is dangerous. Note to self * Do not let children throw balls at bees' nests.
Or let them and see what lessons they have learned at the end of the day.
