First Day of Co-op

Today was a historic day for our new homeschool group, North Star. We had our first day of co-op. There were at least 65 people there. Not too shabby. The boys have classes such as Ancient Egypt, Geology, Art, I Love America, Theater & Chess.

Co-op is normally a lot of work for Moms. That work was exacerbated by the fact that the air conditioning was broken in the building we are renting. It was a long hot day. Still it was quite fulfilling. Isn't that the way it always is? The things most worth having are worth working hard to achieve.

Once we got home from picking up Adee and McKay from school I just laid here until Emilee came to pick up all the kids.

The good news is this is an activity we acclimate to as the semester moves along. The boys get use to packing lunch and I get use to staying up late to get classes ready.

The best part is the kids get the "socialization" some seem concerned with when you mention you homeschool. I ask you, Could anyone ever think my kids aren't socialized? Anyone who knows a Sorensen kid knows they are way too social!!

Here's a missionary blog as an example if you wanted to set one up for Logan.

You're such a good mom! I noticed your great punctuation, too! "I ask you, Could...?" lol, I know I'm a nerd, put I noticed right away you capitalized "could". I don't think a lot of people know to do that!

So, we thought of y'all today when we saw on the Travel Channel that they're doing the show Bizarre Foods in India! Do y'all ever watch that?? It comes on tonight at like 9 or 10 if you're interested. I think the boys would get a kick out of seeing what Logan might encounter for dinner.

Thanks Michelle for the heads up. Our unti study about India has been fun. We are trying to prepare Logan a little for the culture without frightening him. For example, yesterday we read about monsoon season and wrestling cobras at the bath tank. Logan is being a good sport. Tomorrow is temple day!!We did eat lentils tonight in honor of India. Although, he says he's going to eat that food for two years. Right now he just wants hamburgers!!
