Back from Jamaica on Sunday last. Monday and Tuesday were warm… Tuesday was 75 degrees. I took the opportunity to take my Harley Ultra Classic to the shop for some Spring servicing. Just in the nick of time, I might add since yesterday the temperature started to drop and we had a dusting of snow last night. This morning, it was 16 degrees. Not quite Spring yet and a good thing he bike is not ready to be picked up. My bike is not a garage princess and I don’t trailer.
All well and good things were. Yesterday Vanessa was at the Psylodelic Museum at the Fur Peace Ranch getting ready for our opening next week with a concert by Marty Balin and his band and a new Gallery showing featuring the art works of Grace Slick. That left me as the learning coach home schooling Izze. Let me tell you… my hat is off to all teachers of young people. It is so important and so hard to do. We are home schooling right now because we have issues with the Common Core Curriculum that our government forces on the states, but I am not going to get into a political diatribe here. Anyway, she is thriving on the accelerated learning that home school allows for so far. We’ll see how this plays out as she gets over the next couple of years.
Those of you who home school, know how arduous and time consuming it is. Vanessa and I are fortunate that our life style allows for this so far.
Yesterday was History… we got feudal Japan and finished her second grade requirements. She is reading at an eighth grade level and her language arts are off the charts. Today is Science… Thank goodness I’ve got the Learning Coach books… I’ve forgotten more than I can remember to tell you about.
Today she is practicing cursive handwriting and then we’re going to do Science. Later this afternoon, it’s ice skating and I’m going to rent a pair of skates and hit the ice with her. It will be the first time in decades for me. We’ll see how that goes.
Being home is more than great… but it is certainly not kicking back as many of my friends seem to think I would do when I get home.
Life is full, time and energy consuming and good…
Off to do some science…
