I am sorry I haven't been blogging regularly this week. I am just not feeling well. The boy's had a cold and hubby got it and of course I got it last and it's really doing a number on me. It just doesn't seem to want to go away ugh. I have stayed pretty healthy all winter and now that it's spring of course I get sick LOL.

Today we did go to the Toldeo Museum of Art's in Ohio. We don't live in Ohio but it wasn't a long drive either. I didn't take any pics because I wasn't sure if they would let you or not. We kind of just went on a whim. They had a temporary display with a couple of mummies. It was really interesting to see. I thought it would have been more of a display but it was neat anyway. I liked a lot of the art there. I just wish I felt healthier to have enjoyed it more.

I love this about homeschooling. Granted it was on a weekend and anyone can go on the weekend but I love the fact that we really can go when we want to. I love too that the boy's don't groan because they are doing more learning. The really enjoyed looking at all the paintings and artworks and even asked questions. I love seeing them enjoy learning new things. Homeschooling really isn't just about doing "school" things but a way of life. In the short three years of homeschooling the boy's I have learned so much! I have learned that learning is taking place everyday whether it's by reading a book or exploring life together.

This year of homeschooling has been the best yet. It's because I have relaxed and really seen the possibilities of learning. I have actually found I love to learn! Me, the girl who dreaded going to school loves to learn?! It's funny when I think back to just three years ago how I initially started to homeschool because I thought it was best for the boy's. Now I see what it has done for me. Not only am I closer to the boy's and the whole family but I am learning right along with them. The boy's sure have taught me a lot. And here I thought I was educating them LOL. Can you tell I really love homeschooling? LOL.
