Boy, if these photos don’t show what our homeschool is like, I don’t know what does.
Yesterday, we went hiking at Red Rock Dells, a park about 20 minutes from us.
It was so much fun. It was nature study, history, science, PE and more. And it’s just beautiful and good for the soul.
Today, Daryl took Toria and Alex and some homeschooling friends two hours away to take part in a movie shoot.
As extras. In a zombie movie. 🙂
Isn’t my boy darling?!
This is the movie they’re shooting.
Daryl just called to check in. They didn’t wrap up shooting until after seven so they’ll be back late. They’re excited about going back tomorrow and Saturday, even though it involves an awful lot of sitting around (they’re bringing iPod chargers and more books tomorrow!).
They’re learning lots about the movie business and I have no idea what else (can I somehow make this count for social studies?), but what an experience!
And in contrast, this is what Jack and I were doing while they were filming….
He stayed home and helped me with Fiona (no zombies under five allowed). He’s not sure if he wants to have anything to do with this zombie business, though he’s signed up so he can take part if he chooses to.
And we had a pretty fun time on our own.
It’s an odd life, but a fun one! 🙂
