Yesterday I posted about our (almost) perfectly delightful first day of homeschool kindergarten where we really didn’t do much, and apparently I wasn’t the only one who noticed. Here’s a snippet of my bedtime conversation with Wyatt:
Me: So how did you like your first day of kindergarten?
Wyatt: It was so much fun! But I didn’t learn anything. All we did was take pictures!
Me: *laughs nervously*
Guys, he’s totally onto me. I told him we’d do more “real” learning tomorrow if he wanted, and he was practically giddy when I mentioned busting out the flashcards. He’s weird.
Except, we still didn’t get to those workbooks or flashcards today (although I did find my way to the Target dollar spot clearance for some school supplies) because today was a ZOO day.
I wasn’t invited on this trip (rude. j/k I had the house to myself and it was the stuff of dreams), but he had a great time. Poppo (my dad) made sure they read the sign for every animal, you know, so it would officially be an educational trip. Wyatt was particularly fond of the chimpanzees and the lizards. Fine choices, if you ask me. But when asked what he learned the most about, he very enthusiastically told me how he learned about maps and that they had to follow one to find their way around the zoo.
I swear I’m not an unschooler (I don’t know though, maybe I secretly am and I just haven’t come to terms with it yet), but the first couple of “unschooled” days have felt good. I really think we’ll crack that workbook open tomorrow. Maybe.
Are you a homeschooler? Are you easing as slowly into it as I am? Make me feel not so alone!
