we just got back a few days ago from a two week family road trip. we primarily focused on seeing sites that were relevant to the american revolutionary war and that time period. thus we visited Boston, Lexington, Concord, and Philadelphia. we stopped by Niagara Falls on the way to Boston and also were able to view a lot of the land between here and there. we saw all 5 of the Great Lakes as well.
it's the first day of school for the local public school today. and officially our first day back to homeschool lessons. except my students aren't here which makes it a tad difficult to teach. ;-)
the boys have been visting their grandparents for the holiday weekend which is where they are and why they aren't home right now. we have a soccer game at 3pm today, so i'm planning to take bubba's soccer stuff over there this afternoon and get him ready for the game (they're actually closer to the soccer field anyways). if there's time before the game, i'd like for bubba and i to play a game we purchased on our trip that's about the revolutionary war. it's an educational game...trivia style, i think. it looked like a fun way to review what we've learned (and maybe learn some new facts too)!
hmmm. right now the weather is looking somewhat unfriendly. we'll have to see if the soccer game gets cancelled today. perhaps the stormy weather will pass before the afternoon game is scheduled to be played. if not, we'll just hang out at grandma's a bit longer and play our revolutionary war trivia game with them!
happy first day of school!
