Day Fifty Eight

.
"Your kids don't go to school? What do you do with them?"

I get asked that question often. :-)
If someone asks me today I'll say "We went to Dairy Queen for Blizzards!." :-)

I went to their web site and signed up to coupons that they e-mailed me and we have a DQ only minutes from our house. My kids are still thrilled (even after a year of being home) at the thought of doing fun stuff during school hours so when I asked them if they wanted to go, they got all excited and told me I was the best mom in the world (which I am. LOL). We invited my mom to come also (she lives next door).

It was a beautiful morning (we went about 11:30) and we sat outside and had our Blizzards (actually, I didn't have one-I'm not a fan of soft ice cream). The sun was shining, there was a gentle breeze and we saw a few butterflies fluttering around.

Joanne,

I know exactly what you are talking about. Our usual answers include the "zoo, the park, or we went and met Daddy for lunch"!

We should live closer. We went to DQ yesterday for lunch. Would have been nice to have been witn another unschooling family rather than a bunch of grumpy construction workers on their lunch break!
