And this is exactly why we homeschool.
Today was a beautiful December day in SoCal, 70 degrees, warm sun. We met several other homeschooling families at the park today and the older boys helped the younger kids make light sabers.
The tallest one is mine. So that I can smack them without lifting my fat butt off of the couch.
After making the light sabers, we then began the sanctioned “Hitting of Others with Sticks” lesson. And it was a good one. Sadly though, the tears were few and far between. I was hoping for a little blood, but all of the kids behaved themselves quite nicely.
It just doesn’t get any better than this.
