We didn't do much "sit down" work in the last week or so. On Tuesday I was trying to get myself motivated and was talking to Ms. D without really thinking about what I was saying "Well," I said "let's get focused. Let's do something educational."
She got a panicked look in her eye "Ah, wait a minute...what do you mean by "educational"?"
"I mean, go outside, record the interesting things you see in your nature journal, log and review some of the books you've been reading, take that weather book you love and write out and explanation for me about why it hails, all that Shakespeare stuff we've been reading and watching, compile it in your head and write out to me what you like about it, work on some of your vision therapy, get out the 3-D books and look at them, practice your OT exercises, your yoga, design you garden, review your math, make up some grammar exercises for ME to do, ...you know...just some focused stuff. Have a plan."
She looked terribly relieved "Oh. PHEW. I thought you wanted to do school."
