Sometimes When You Homeschool, a Change of Scenery Will Do You Good

You know that song by Sheryl Crow? It goes.. a change will do you good… you know a change (a change) will do you good. Sometimes that’s how it is with homeschooling. We just need someplace different a change of scenery to make school go smoother.

When that happens I load up the kids and we go some place different to do school.

On this day, we went to Chick-fil-a. #4 loves the “Cow Place”

Now if you haven’t been to Chick-fil-a to eat your missing out… their food is fabulous.

BUT they also have an indoor play place (for breaks) and free wifi. It’s

just what we need when the walls feel like they are closing in on us at home.

Before you say it… I know, I know.. my kids have on shorts, coats and flip flops.

This drives their father/principal crazy…

#1 Turns 24.. and She Saved a Turtle

I took child #1 out for her birthday.  Our first stop Chick-fil-a for a chicken biscuit and then to Starbucks for an iced coffee with “THIS MUCH MILK”.  (hold your hand up and use your index and thumb to show about 2″).  These things make #1 really happy.

We shopped for a while, tried on lots of clothes… So much so that even I was tired of seeing “if those pants fit”.

Then we headed to Pei Wei.  Have you ever eaten at Pei Wei? It’s awesome and I’ll be reveiwing it soon.. at

#1 and her most Fabulous Aunt

After Lunch we shopped some more, and then headed home.  We were almost to the low water bridge… when we spotted a turtle in the middle of the road.

I warned her that it would potty on her if she picked it up.. and true to turtle form.. it did.. but I didn’t get a photo of that. 🙁

He started to peek out.. but never opened up..

#1 puts the turtle safely on the other side of the road.
