All of our weekdays start out with schoolwork. Today we knew that we had a lot to do away from home, so we gathered everything we needed, including the lesson planner, and took it all with us. One of the many wonderful advantages of home schooling is the flexibility!
First stop...Weight Watcher's Meeting #3. I lost 2 more pounds in the last week! Yay me!
Next, my daughter had a doctor's appointment, closely followed by dentist appointments for both of us.
Look ma, no cavities!
Of course, in between each stop and in each waiting room we worked on today's lessons.
Next stop...History field trip! We have been studying archaeology, so where better to see actual archaeological finds than a museum? This local museum is really great and most of the artifacts are local. The thousands of artifacts in the museum are accompanied by photos, letters, models, manequins and more.
We bought a South Carolina state flag in the gift shop on the way out and with it received a lesson from one of the curators on what each element of the flag was intended to portray. Even I learned something new! Then the proud owner of the flag took some time to have a bounce on the jostling board that sits on the museum's front porch. I even joined her for a few bounces!
Nope it didn't end there! We headed off to the organic farmer's market that is held each Wednesday downtown. The first stop is always the booth with the homemade whole wheat organic cookies. She never minds spending her own money on these! Today, my daughter also bought a basil plant to put outside beside her lemon balm and sunflowers.
Of course, I had to stop to grab a few tomatoes. The ones in our garden are mostly green still. And we went by to see our CSA farmers who had squash, kale, russian kale, arugula, and mustard greens for us this week.
The market even had live entertainment this week! The duo seen on the left here was the most amazing of the ones we heard. They were really good and so entertaining!
After the market, we needed to eat dinner in a hurry because it was almost time for my women's group from church to meet. We headed over to a locally owned restaurant where everything is made from scratch and tastes just like it came from your own kitchen. How do you like the name?
My daughter babysits all of the little ones while the ladies meet on Wednesday nights.
Tonight was extra special because we had a new addition.
Baby Jaxson, only 1 week old, was watched over closely by his big sister Kailyn!
We wrapped up our day with a relaxing game of cards when we got home. I won! Yay me again!
If only everyday could be so much fun!
How was your Wednesday?
