And off go...

I really tried to stay on task today. But, really, with January weather in the mid-70's how possible is that. We read Crinkleroot's Guide to Knowing Animal Habitats by Jim Arnosky during lunch.

Which led to us talking about our backyard as an animal habitat, which led to MB wanting to reload the bird feeders - right then. Of course she also needed to scrub out the bird bath and put clean water in it. Then when she collected pine cones and wanted peanut butter - how could I say no.

The birds will be happy during the upcoming cold snap.

We did manage to get back on task, then off task, then back on task. But, isn't that kind of what is fun about homeschooling. The things children will come up with on their own.

And, junior has developed his own way of getting comfortable.

He scoots himself right down to the bottom of his bouncy seat so that his legs can hang over the edge. Don't dare try to actually use the straps to hold him in. Those white spit rags are left over from an exciting game of peek-a-boo played with K shortly before he fell asleep.

We got everything done, feed the birds, wrestled the willies out - another good day.
