Yesterday was the type of day my homeschooling dreams are made of. We started off snuggled in bed reading a book, then got up and drove 18 miles down the canyon, over the river, through the forest and back in time.
We went to the seat of the California Gold Rush in Coloma for Gold Days - a historical reenactment of life in the mid 1800's.
When I told Avery where we were going, she said, "Oh good! We can do Bench Monday there!"
That's my girl.
After driving back through the forest, over the river, up the canyon and back into the 21st century, we came home to discover a lack of internet service. Talk about living history! I was secretly thrilled to live for a while without the internet. It certainly made it easier for all of us to stay off the computer. Instead, we made some rope (a skill we learned in Coloma) and then we crawled back into bed and read some more. It was a perfect day.
