One of the Best Parts of Homeschool

It was a warm, sunny day. A really sunny day.




"Hey mommy--it is too sunny to sit in the house or even in the car!"

Spanky was right. So this mommy took a brief a stop from the very busy homeschooling day and surprised her four children with lunch al fresco. At a place that the healthy mommy almost never ever took the four children. This was the starter.



Note the lovely sliced jalepenos. Cheddar fries just aren't the same without 'em.

And so it was the perfect break from equations, chreias and spelling. And something I can do because I homeschool. It makes up for all those crazy, insane, about-to-bang-my-head-against-the-wall-because-the-kids-are-driving-me-crazy moments; not like we have many :)



Oh did I mention bacon bits came with the cheddar fries? Another must.

Firstly I wanna eat my bodyweight in those fries they look delicious.

And then I wanna lay in that sun.

I have practically forgotten what the sun on my skin feels like.

What a wise fun mom you are! :)

Texan Mama @ Who Put Me In Charge said...

Sounds good, but I don't think that can convince me to homeschool.

I don't understand, I thought you did send your kids to school?

You can explain it to me at the blogger dinner.
