This home school thing really gets tough sometimes. There is so much to learn and study some days I just don’t know how we get it all done. Like, a few weeks ago the kids and I headed back to Furman for another Debate Lecture about the United States Policies towards Russia.
I am not sure if my older three are learning much from these trips but I know Liz and I are learning a lot!
We have already learned the Swans really like us. When they see us standing by the pond they come right over.
We studied Puddle Jumping 101
There was a cloud class. . .and strangely enough, we did really well in that one. It was even a little relaxing. . . But promise you won’t tell anyone. We don’t like to brag about how smart we are. Sometimes people find these college classes really hard.
Even though we did really well in the cloud class, I think we smoked the stopping to smell the roses class 100.
These Home School days at Furman are brutal I tell you!
So brutal, we had to stop for ice cream.
Did I say Furman was brutal?
Gee, I thought Furman was tough. . .but it has nothing on Clemson. The debate club took our little class to Clemson last week.
There were more Lectures about Russia that we had to attend. There was a lesson on how to use the college library and a tour of the school. Clemson is a great big school! The lecture was tough.
Kathryn seemed to love this school and fit right in.
After the lecture, tour and library class Matthew and Stephen visited with friends toured the school and talked about the future.
Liz and I attended a journalism class and interviewed the Elite.
They shared their thoughts on the war and how tough things were for them. We took some time to really ponder things and then we went back to our brutal home school life.
There was little time to waste. The leaf throwing class was about to begin and these Clemson Tigers don’t mess around. When it is time for class it IS time for class.
There was a final run the grounds
It was time to call it a day. Yes! Sometimes these home school days can be brutal. But don’t worry, we try to take it easy and enjoy each other every now and then.
