One of the beautiful things about homeschooling is spending your day with your offspring. Mine happens to be a 9-year-old boy. Wednesday, we got up early to help with a hike at Eagle Marsh. We were supposed to help with a group of preschoolers. Shortly after we got there, a thunderstorm hit, so there was no hike, at least not yet.
Liz, the education director at Eagle Marsh, had a seed program set up for the kids, and my son took pictures.
Eventually, the rain cleared and the kids got to hike.
The hike was really short, less than 15 minutes.
After the kids were loaded back on their bus, my son and I walked back to our bus. We rode to the downtown library, where he had a writing workshop. He worked on found poetry and a story. Then, it was home to ride bicycles. We got out our bikes and rode around the neighborhood for about a half-hour. Then a thunderstorm moved through and with it continual showers. That was my bike ride for 30 Days of Biking — a short ride around the neighborhood.
More rain is in Thursday’s forecast, which also happens to be the day of the home opener for our local Single A minor league baseball team — the TinCaps.
