On the first day of public school we went to the “No School Picnic” which is organized by a homeschooling group up in Jericho, Vermont. We took our Frisbee and volleyball net and set that up. One woman was doing face painting. Hope and I saw some great were-lions. Other people had brought soccer balls. We’ve been homeschooling our kids from the beginning (10 years) and this is the first time we’ve done any formal homeschool group activity. It was interesting and our kids had fun.
Some of the interesting observations about the crowd was that of the hundred or so people there there were only two people who were overweight, most people drove mini-vans, Buy Local and similar bumper stickers were prevalent, almost all of the kids were under age 15 with most of them being under age 10, most of the families seemed to have been homeschooling for less than two years, almost all of the adults were women and there were three other dogs besides Kia. All were well behaved.
