Love is in the air!

Winter is a time of blustery winds, warm blankets, and book friends to fill your heart.

Home Schooling Nanny

Sounds like an excellent title for an erotica, doesn't it? (I'll have to remember it just in case I decide to write one.)

However, this blog is not about that, it is about how I, in my dotage, have become a grandmother who is homeschooling three grands.

It is fun and invigorating, but it also eats up a great deal of energy.

We visit the library an average of three times a week. That's three times a week for the children, my own personal trips add another three visits a week. My library is only open five days, one of them is Saturday, and I don't go on Saturday and usually not on Fridays, so yes, I spend a lot of time there.

We also travel into Boston to attend art classes at the Museum of Fine Arts, we have skating every other week, and weekly park days, which are about to become twice a week. 

We do not lack socializing opportunities.

We have organic classes in the car, at Starbucks, or walking on the beach.

The children are happier and learning things they would never get in school.

And best of all, I get to spend a lot of time with three wonderful children.

And occasionally I get to write.

Do you, or have you ever considered, home schooling?
