Just another day at our co-op

Yesterday, I took my children to one of our local home-school co-op's. The group had taken a break during the summer and this was the first get together of the new school year. I always love getting back together with my home-school friends, My kids do too!  The kids of course spent most of their time playing with each other, I on the other hand enjoyed quite a bit of chit chat with all the other mamma's. I learned that  aapparently they are going to start incorporating some learning games at each meeting. We had not done this prior. At first I wasn't sure if I wanted to have more homeschooling lessons added at these visits since this was mainly for play and socialisation in my mind. The gals eventually sold me on the idea after they told me about a few of the games: Compound words game- You have to take a list of different words and see how many "compound words" you can create, Skeleton puzzle- You take paper cut out of bones and tape them together in the right spots, etc. I think the kids are really going to enjoy this type of fun  learning, so I am super excited about changing the idea of our lil group. So I guess we will find out next week if the kids are excited too ;)
