Blogger Friend School Assignment – Feel free to join the fun!

This is WACKY WEEK here at Blogger Friend School!  Everything is wacky fun!  This week YOU, the student, get to share something of your choice that is little “Wacky”!!!

Have you done something crazy in your homeschool?  Do you fingerpaint with your toes?  Do you let your children do your hair?  Do you wear your pajamas during homeschool?   Oh, the list is endless, but it’s up to you and how much fun you want to have.

To make it even “wackier” (not sure if it’s really a word, but hey, we don’t check spelling this week at BFS either!!!…..try and type some or all of your post sdrawkcab.  (backwards!)

!keew gnixaler dna nuf a siht ekaM

(…and forwards…Make this a fun and relaxing week!)

YKCAW – ha!  I tried to type this backwards and my fingers are so used to just typing on their own so to speak they converted it into wacky – involuntarily!!!  I had to really really concentrate to get it backwards.

 

Which may be in keeping with me – I’m not particularly wacky.  Though get me with my Dad and things change a bit.  I think we spark off each other! 

 

I started thinking about YKCAW things that may happen around here:

    mso-style-parent:””;

  • My kids think that being weird, being a geek is cool
  • My kids do “car – watches” – they wait out on the road, watching/waiting for our visitors to arrive.  This seems whacky at first but it has now become a part of our family identity – it is what we do!
  • The kids go wacky with the first rains for the season – they dance, they build cubbies, they read a book – all out in the rain in celebration!
  • I decorate my house with naïve country decorating, with lots of chickens and I am terrified of chickens – my kids think that is plain weird!

 

I think the TSEIKCAHW (whackiest) thing we do is when we clean the freezer.  We have such fun.  I get the job of prizing the ice off the walls of the chest freezer and then I throw it at the kids. It is their closest experience of winter.  They love it.
