I love our homeschool cooperative. I’m sure you have gotten that impression before, since I continually bring it up. 😉 I love being surrounded by community, the friendships that we have made, and the opportunities that we have had as a family, that we would otherwise have missed out on.
Speaking of opportunities, this week we made a visit to the East Lake Commons Cohousing Community with our homeschool group, and took a walking tour of Gaia Gardens. I have to admit, I am terribly jealous of those that live in that community, and those that live in others like it. It is a little known fact that Michael and I have talked at great length about living in a cohousing community, and even went so far as to do a good bit of research into what it would take to start one. Maybe one day…
Last night, we finished the very last chapter in Mr. Poppers’ Penguins, so today we wrapped up the Literature Unit that we have been working on over the past 3 weeks (more on that soon). On tonight’s agenda – Mr. Popper’s Penguins Family Movie Night!
P.S. Seriously??!! That is how the book ended? “So, I’m gonna head out with these guys. Its cool if I see you in a year or two, right? Laters baby.” I had a very frank talk with Haden about why Mr. Popper’s actions were just NOT cool.
We have been dabbling in children’s classical literature this past year, and I have to be honest… I’m calling into question the sanity of the people that deemed some of these books good literature. Just sayin’.
