Homeschool Moment today

It was a a good day. It was a bit dreary outside but it was a good day none the less. This morning while doing school work with the boy's when I heard this noise. At first I had no idea what it was but as I listened I realized it was birds chirping. I open the door and there were 100's if not 1000's (LOL) of birds all over our yard! So I had the boy's put on their shoes and we went outside to watch them. They are getting ready to migrate south. It was very cool seeing all the birds hanging out in our yard resting and getting some food to go LOL. That's one nice thing about living in the country. If we have lived in the city there was no way we would have seen this. It was nice too because if the boy's had been in regular school, they never would have seen it.
Also today we went to the Library and got a few more books. Then we went to the park right next to the library and was surprised to find most of the playground equipment wasn't wet even though it was sprinkling earlier. So the boy's got to play for a while. At the park they also have a walking path so after a while we just walked around it. It was nice to just look at all the different things and walk with the boy's. We looked at some interesting trees and just nature in general. The boy's and I loved it. So we didn't do a lot of "school work" but we did learn something about nature and each other. One of the many reason's I am so glad we homeschool.
