Last week I took the kids on a field trip. When we arrived at our planned destination we realized there was a pet store next to it. In the store were 4 kitties from the animal shelter that needed adopting. We adopted 2 of them. They have been great fun, and a springboard into learning too! Yesterday I took my 10 and 6 year olds to the library, and I couldn’t get my 10 year old away from the cat and dog books. She checked out 3 of them, the limit for any one non fiction topic at our library. This morning she was teaching her 4 year old sister about cat care. These are the times when I love homeschooling the most. I am reminded today to count my blessings!
