Stuck at home on a Thursday,

Go ahead laugh! Those of you who know me
will, I know. I hate leaving my house.
But today we are stuck here, because my truck is in the shop.
Not because it's broken down, because I brought it in for an
oil change etc, and to be inspected Yesterday, and the inspection
machine was not working correctly, so it's still there.
My fault...wait until the last minute and all that.
So we are missing a fun play date with people we like and
had to post pone picking something up from freecycle
(don't tell Farmer Dad..I'm only supposed to get rid of
I also have a bunch of stuff to return to Target and we are out of
yogurt. The Princess is not happy about this last one at all.
We are not "doing school" this week, just reading and drawing and playing
and tending our garden. OK, maybe we are learning, but it is much more
"unschooling" than normal.The four day weekend just took it's toll on both of us,
and we "need a vacation" as Princess likes to say.
She woke up at 5:30 am today and is now napping on our couch...very unusual.

I love it when they Citcat naps unexpectedly. She is in such a good mood afterwards. It really is the truest sleep.

I hope you get out tomorrow. Happy unschooling vacation week!

Thanks Nina,
I have my truck back and we will hit the road when Princess wakes up.
She has been sleeping fitfully these last few nights, (I think she may be getting "growing pains" in her legs)
so I am letting her sleep in.
I've been sitting here planning June..and we will be having fun!

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
