WFMW ~A Schedule of our own choosing

One of the (out of MANY!) things that I love about homeschooling is the fact that we can dictate our own schedule. Last week we did schoolwork on Martin Luther King day while the rest of the schools in our area were out but on Wednesday we had some errands to run in the morning and when we got home I knew we would be having to rush if we tried to do schoolwork and besides the weather was simply beautiful for the middle of January so I asked "Do you want to go in and do schoolwork or do you want to play outside?" Guess what they chose...
Outside it was and we had a lot of fun. The kids got Clover (the rabbit) out as well and she had a jolly time running up and down our trails and seeing what edible things she could find. In the picture above she was checking out what I was taking to the compost pile.
We had fun doing a little sledding and then the kids also got out their bikes.

Megan loves getting to ride on her push bike.

This bike of Aaron's we won this winter in a drawing at our local grocery store. It is still on the big side for him but he did a lot of practising that day and can use it pretty well now.
Not having to do things according to the schedule dictated by the school district really works for me!

What a fun day! We love this benefit of home schooling, too. We were able to take advantage of a free ice skating session plus lesson this morning because we are able to set our own schedule.
(We have a bunny named Clover, too!)
Thanks for sharing!

I love being able to work our schedule for our family's needs. We travel and take a ton of time off from our "regular work" but the kids learn all the time. We homeschool all year and take lots of breaks! Tomorrow we're going to the Edison Museum...fun and learning! Love it! Thanks for sharing!
