So, now that you've had a good laugh, I want to share with you what I've been obsessing about all weekend (besides sitting on the couch to watch the Olympics)!
You may or may not know that I'm a big Harry Potter fan. One of the sessions I attended at the homeschooling conference was about how to homeschool Harry Potter-style.
The three moms who led the session formed a co-op to share the work (and fun!) of creating Hogwarts "lessons" and activities for their HP-crazed kids. These women were SO creative -- though they had lots of help from online resources, and are putting it all on their blog to share with anyone who wants to do the same!
I've been busy making lists of things we need and activities and outings to Potterfy. Wands and robes are first, of course. Plenty of parchment for owl posts. I'm trying not to spend too much money on books from Flourish & Botts. I did, however, invest in a set of kits for Spells and Potions.
As I'm fairly strong in Herbology, Care of Magical Creatures and Transfiguration, a little more help from Professors Sprout, Hagrid, and McGonagall, and we'll have plenty to keep us busy over the next few months!
I'm also excited to spend more time studying Defense Against the Dark Arts with my boys. We haven't done regular devotionals before, and this is inspiring in an odd kind of way.
And, yes, we're still unschoolers. ;)
