Grandpas and Homeschooling

JMJ121  *I am going to leave the reader with the thought that homeschooling provides more time to visit with extended family, when they come to visit.  That is, if you are willing to be a little flexible with breaking away from the regular routine.

Another great reason to homeschool is…  more time with grandpa!

We celebrated Lundi Gras today. What is that? It is Mardi Gras’ next door neighbor.  We invented it out of necessity as an excuse to celebrate Mardi Gras a day earlier than usual. (Lundi is French for Monday, so instead of fat Tuesday, Lundi Gras translates to fat Monday) You see, my pops is sadly leaving tomorrow, and we wanted to celebrate one more time.

After a rather leisurely day, we enjoyed a fun meal of brat dogs (one of his favorites), kettle chips, and lemon meringue pie, a specialty baked by Sabrina. We basked in each other’s company one last time before Grandpa Claude’s departure back to the midwestern state of Indiana.  What a perfect visit we enjoyed with him.

What’s left to say after such an outstanding day?

I am going to leave the reader with the thought that homeschooling provides more time to visit with extended family, when they come to visit.  That is, if you are willing to be a little flexible with breaking away from the regular routine.

We have shared so many joyful memories over the last two weeks, with my father, that will last a lifetime.  If the kids would have been attending brick and mortar school, it would have been impossible for them to spend as much time with their beloved grandfather.  They would have been physically at the school all day, and then doing their homework by night, with maybe the opportunity of sharing one meal with their grandpa every day.  Also, not to mention how tired they would have probably been, from getting up early and spending the entire day at school.  So, today is another day to feel blessed by homeschooling!

Grandpas and homeschooling.  They go together!

May God shower blessings on your family as he has on mine.    Annette
