Here are a few of the "classes" we had in Tahoe:
Language Arts in Batman Pajamas
Measuring Snow Depth in Lengths of Boy
(Thanks for the sleds, mom!)
P.E. with a View
We recently invested in our own snowshoes. What a great way to get exercise and see some very cool things. (thank you, Carol J., for introducing us to this!)
Identifying Animal Tracks
Before we left home I printed out a ton of info about the winter animals in Tahoe, what they do to survive, and what their footprints looked like. Sadly, we only saw a few in person, and besides these snowshoe hare prints (which we were very excited about!), mostly only saw dog prints.
Reading like a Pro
Jacob read "Number the Stars" by Lois Lowry - historical fiction about WWII
Meanwhile I read "Want Not" by Jonathon Miles, which was long but very interesting, and a book about crocheting.
How to Move Stubborn Animals
This is Lucy, our little 10 lb. westiepoo. Her little legs sunk too deep in the snow to really get around by walking. So we devised other methods.
How to Pick Yourself Up After a Major Face Plant
There were a few of these. And it wasn't just Jacob doing them, though I'm not naming names.
How to Look Really Cool Next to the Inside Out Rainbow Unicorn
On the way home from Tahoe we stopped by PIXAR and got a tour from a friend of mine (thank you, Tia!) We got to see a bit of behind the scenes animation and learned a few secrets. But we were told, in no uncertain terms, that if we divulged any information we would be hunted down by the unicorn. Do you see how long her horn is? And you can't see it, but the end is rather pointy.
We like this world-schooling so far!
