Tuesday Thing1 had an allergist appointment in the Fort. After the appointment, the receptionist asked if he needed a note for school. I replied that I am his school.
Tuesday was the first time our school was portable. I packed up school for my kids and took it with us. I had flashbacks of doing math in the dentist office, in the car, at other people's houses. I even remember doing school at The Husband's house (before he was a husband).
One of my memories is doing school in a hotel room, probably in about third grade. It was fractions. I remember lying on the hotel bed trying to work fast so we could swim in the hotel's pool, but I kept getting distracted by the little kids watching PBS.
The drawback to being portable is that self-proclaimed truant officers feel compelled to ask, "So, are we playing hookey today?"
Portability is another reason I am happy to homeschool.
Just some thoughts after one of those "full circle" days.
