Today’s homeschooling consisted of cleaning my son John’s room. He uses Legos, a LOT of them. They were hiding everywhere, like fleas. We also cleaned up a bunch of hero-clicks, with and without bases. And evil foam beads which were infiltrating into every space. I told him that cleaning was just as much an education as doing math. If you can’t find your pencil or your math book, then you can’t do the work anyway. He thinks we should clean everyday (emphasis on the word, WE). But I like the freedom to just take the day and make our lives a bit more orderly without worrying whether it’s part of some dumb lesson plan or not.
