Have you ever considered homeschooling out of doors?
One of Jerah's drawing assignments today called for her to draw something outside. And since I'm the paranoid mother that I am and I refuse to let my 10-year-old daughter stay outside in the front yard for extended periods of time by herself, I moved everyone outside and we did our schoolwork in the sunshine.
It was a nice change of pace. When Jaden finished up all of his work, he even pulled out the badminton equipment and played around a bit (instead of — gasp! — playing with his Legos!).
