This is Nathanael in his "Homeschool: The World is My Classroom" sweatshirt. It's not designed by the same person, but it's cute, too. And he liked the ladybug. :^) We found it while searching for homeschool designs on Cafe Press.
The heading of this post is the order our day went in today. This morning, we headed off to a park for a new playgroup. Taliesin quickly made friends with another little boy. Nathanael was soon following and joining in the fun with all of the kids. It was a nice time to talk with the other moms, too. I know several of them from a church I used to attend. None of them homeschool; but it was definitely fun mommy talk. After playgroup, we headed home, read a book called Everyday Things, which talks about things like how a lightbulb and automatic doors work, why we wear pajamas, and why people working in different professions wear different kinds of uniforms. This latter one inspired dress-up! Taliesin dressed up in his Star Wars storm trooper costume. Nathanael, who has never much been into dress-up, dressed up in Taliesin's Batman costume. I played different roles - sometimes as someone needing rescued and sometimes as the bad guy. It was lots of fun. We finished our fun day up with a trip to the park down the street with a neighbor girl Taliesin and Nathanael enjoy playing with. Then we made what is again becoming our weekly trip to the library. We came home with some interesting books - super hero books, Barney books, some on Native American history, one about saints and animals, an art counting book - just a lot of different options. Should be fun to dig into!
