Homeschool Decompression Walk

Tuesday, May 11th 2020

Things came to a head in Le Homeschool today.  My daughter came unglued but I guess the good news is I didn’t.  (This time anyway.)  I terminated her school day, let her cry for a while and then we went out on a walk.



Nearby community garden on South Street in Somerville, complete with habitats for pollinators.


Here she is with her “heart” -a tulip petal- “on her sleeve.”


It was lovely and we should do this more often.

She *even* went back and finished a lot of her school work. Though that may have been motivated by wanting to earn back the recreational screen time I’d suspended. I guess we’ll never know.
