When I was working I didn't have the time to create Mecca's homeschool program the way I wanted. So I'm taking full advantage of the time I have now. Lately it's been all about the activities! In the last couple of weeks we have been to:


* The Carlos Museum at Emory University to examine Egyptian and Asian artifacts.
* The Atlanta History Center's homeschool day to revisit how America was shaped.
* Callaway Gardens and roamed through the beautiful nature paths and gardens.
* Legoland with a homeschool group and built race cars and sang karaoke on the Lego Friend's set.
* Lowe's Build and Grow program where Mecca built a Wheel-of-Love.
* The ImagineIt Children's Museum.
* Zoo School at Zoo Atlanta.
* A fantastic student performance of the Alvin Alley Dance Troupe at the Fox Theater.
* An all day robotics workshop at Georgia Tech Research Institute.
* Spivey Hall at Clayton State University to hear amazing jazz performed by Clark-Atlanta University students.
* The Fernbank Science Museum.

What's makes it all even cooler is the fact that many of the activities are free and most are greatly discounted for homeschoolers! In addition to the activities, Mecca just finished her first round of hip-hop classes, continues with gymnastics and has one more session of a hands on science class. I think she has it pretty good, so if she complains about her spelling or math exercises I remind her that most kids are sitting in a classroom for 6-8 hours a day! Oh isn't life sweet for this 7 year old. ;)

So cool guys! I've been thinking about homeschooling for a while now. Look at all the amazing things you get to do!
I heard a speech from James Patterson where he said the difference between America and Europe is that in America your intelligence is tied to your test scores, where in Europe it’s balanced with creativity.
Most of my friends that are homeschoolers just seem to have such happy, well-rounded kids.
Thank you for another great post!

What a blessing to have such a wonderful spouse and daughter. We chose to homeschool before my wife got pregnant. I've met many parents with children in "prestiges" schools and those children are unhappy, frustrated and acting out. When will the childs soul purpose become more important that a parents agenda?
