Guess what? Grandma and Grandpa are here! And since we haven’t seen them in a little under two years we are making the most of it! Toss the books aside? No, no. We’ll just alter the schedule a bit. Make sure we get our math in. The older ones are still reading elections selections. We’ll keep up with current events. High schooler is gearing up for NaNoWriMo. But mostly we will…
Because Grandma and Grandpa are some of our best audience when it comes to homeschooling. Many a unit celebration they have been subjected to at Thanksgiving. So there is talk and some work on projects for that.
And we are having Thanksgiving early with them. On Election Day! A perfect time to celebrate all we’ve been learning in our Tapestry of Grace and Elections studies. (Middle Girl is working on a George Washington display board above).

And, as you fellow homeschoolers know, if you give homeschoolers a break, they are going to find a way to learn some things anyway. Often, a week off from a regular schedule helps us discover a new way of learning or a new subject to concentrate on.
We know how blessed we are with grandparents that are interested and involved in our homeschool. And we are going to take full advantage over the next week and a half – and enjoy!
