Our new method of homeschooling requires a lot of reading for the boys. They have decided that they really enjoy taking their reading outside. Sam has a special spot in a tree they named Old Smokey. Jake likes to sit amongst the rocks and bushes to do his reading. But yesterday I found them both in the tree reading, and when I went out to check on them, I heard "Mom, this is the best book ever!" (They were reading books on Ben Franklin and Christopher Columbus) Hopefully, we have found the form of homeschooling that works for our family!
