Last week I said I was planning on writing a post tonight. A couple time in the last month I was late enough leaving home that I drove the long trip through the woods in the dark. On both trips, I saw (and had close calls with) large wildlife. Tonight it was overcast and I knew I would be driving most of that distance in the dark and decided to take an alternate route which involved less wilderness. I encountered a detour about 2 hours into that alternate route. So, the trip took nearly 4 hours. So, the short of it is that I won’t be writing that post until tomorrow night.
Also, in one of the posts below, someone asked me to participate in a getting prepared for the school year type of meme. I have to decline. So far, what we have done to prepare for the school year is nothing. Nor will we be doing anything in the next few weeks. In our jurisdiction homeschoolers are not required to observe the school year and we don’t. The closest we get to it is stocking up on “school” materials because for some of them, this is the only time of year when many stores have a good stock of that type of supplies. While I recognize that in some jurisdictions homeschoolers are obligated to observe the school year (eg. record attendance), I do not want to lend further credence to the widely held belief that homeschooling is school at home. Believ it or not, I have had some ask me if we had a room set up with desks, chairs and a chalkboard.
