Just an Average Day in our Homeschooling Life

Just an Average Day in our Homeschooling Life

Today was filled with Soccer, much as the day before that, and the day before that. Don’t you love the soccer field planted in the Australian bush? Every week, I admire the trees. Being out for the evening here with friends on these Spring nights is gorgeous. The atmosphere was especially fun given many of the families, ours included had stayed up the night before watching Australia play for a chance to go to the World Cup. Cahill stirring the dreams of young soccer players all over our country.

RJ scored in the first few minutes and was so happy. This little man has played soccer since he could walk, dribbling a ball up and down the pitch while his brother was playing. His brother has taught him, so he has someone to play against and train with and RJย has just soaked it all up. This is his first season playing for his brother’s academy and he could not be happier.

LJ takes his soccer very seriously and trains most nights of the week, especially during the Winter. Now it’s summer things are a bit more relaxed and there are no more Saturday games {hallelujah}. It is such a blessing to have spent the day relaxing at home and only needing to go out for the afternoon and evening.

I wanted to take them to the river today after I finished my morning classes, but they all begged to stay home, make hot chocolate and play board games together as we were going out later. It was raining and they felt a pyjama day was in order, and so we bunkered down and made a lot of noise playing the Game of Life, an incredibly large amount of noise truth be told. There was laughter, toy fair hammers that squeak, and much frivolity. As a side note, RJ was working so well on his math during this game, I was amazed.

We spent some time reading the bible together and chatted about what we can be thankful for. They all then wrote or drew in their journals what they were grateful for on this day, a practice I love.

Shane is spending the week at a series of night conferences for work and even whilst holding down the fort, on the home front, sport front, as well as working. Our family is so much more connected & the kids are happy learning. The flexibility of homeschooling that is afforded to us, with our sometimes strange working hours is a blessing I don’t want to overlook.

They poured over books and art today, LJ even read to RJ as they went to sleep. They cooked scrambled eggs for lunch and collaborated on a new invention. This is it, a plain and simple day in the life of our homeschool. Nothing particularly extraordinary, but fun none the less.

I keep saying it, but this is the life for us.

 

Lots of Love
