What We Learned This Summer

So many new things happening this summer. While we have taken a break from formal lessons, due to the very nature of life itself, my son continues to learn.

In June we learned:

  • You can't plant Cucumbers after May because the worms get to them first.
  • Our house is wrapped in a blanket (Tyvek) before the siding is put on.
  • Carpenters make a lot of mess.
  • You have to use a chalk line to make things level.
  • Spirit (our dog) will eat anything, including cigarettes, nails and caulking tubes.
  • Mom doesn't have a favorite color or the house would be painted already.
  • Power tools are better (and cooler) than hand tools.
  • Mosquitoes are impossible to escape from.

In July so far:

  • The neighbors barbecue a lot!
  • Dogs don't like fireworks!
  • Mom does not like fireworks!
  • Trees have to be trimmed before the hurricanes come.
  • How to play Monopoly.
  • How to use the microwave.

Looks like it's going to be an un-schooling summer around here. Life's lessons don't stop for Summer, no matter how hard you try.

I think you can find lessons in anything. Heck, summer is a good time for biology lessons with all the bugs and such.

I don't like fireworks either and neither do the kitties.

That is an awful lot of important learning, in a very short amount of time!
