Idea: Homeschool Prep for the Week

One of the challenges I have with homeschooling the kids is that they are so full of energy it is often hard for them to just hold still and focus.

Today I think I happened upon a great solution: a 4 hour hike!  The kids and I walked to the top of Tiger Mountain, a 6.2 mile hike with a 2000 foot elevation gain.  We enjoyed the trees, the streams, each and every lovely stick, plus the view at the top.

Last I checked, Theo was lying on the floor upstairs humming to himself and Rosie was sitting in the library staring at pictures. I think tomorrow might go very smoothly.
