Relaxed Homeschooling: A Day in Pictures

We don't have a classroom, we don't sit at desks, we don't use a whiteboard, and we certainly don't follow a strict schedule. We are relaxed homeschoolers at heart, and honestly no two days are alike around here. Some days we have appointments and errands, outside classes or field trips, or our regular co-op. Then there are those regular ole' days where we just stay home, so if you ask my kids what they did, it will almost sound like the chorus from The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything song, because they'll tell you they didn't do anything! So here is a snapshot of what a day at home really looks like, when we're home all day, not doing anything!

I'm participating in the Schoolhouse Review Crew's blog carnival, and the current theme is Our Homeschool Day in Pictures.  Some of these pictures were taken by the kids, because nothing is better than seeing things through their eyes, no matter how blurry!  ;-)

Doing some reading with ESA (review) and Star Wars

Of course you can't color without dumping crayons out!

Then it's time for Daddy and dinner.  So you see...we don't really do anything!
