I LOVE our life...
One of the perks of homeschooling is that our days belong to us. All of them. We don't pine for a couple of days a week that we're too exhausted to enjoy, we get to choose how we spend each and every day... and sometimes, like today, we get to be spontaneous and silly with those choices. Just because we can.
We had to go to a town about an hour away to pick up or beef from the processor. It was a long drive and no one really wanted to go but the lure of fast food got the kids out the door without too much grumbling. On the way home we were tired of being in the car on the first sunny day we'd had in over a week so when I spotted the sign for the 'World's Biggest Rocking Chair' at the next exit I just had to stop. A 10 minute detour turned a tedious chore into a grand adventure. :-)
