We started off our first day of school this week by taking an afternoon field trip to Stone Mountain http://www.stonemountainpark.com/ (hey, one of the benefits of homeschooling is taking field trips whenever you want to!). The weather was p-e-r-f-e-c-t! It rained early in the morning, so the high was only in the 80’s. Mimi (my mom) has been visiting this week and went along with us. We visited a few of our favorite attractions (the kids love playing in the Treehouse and The Great Barn). We also took the skycar up to the top of the mountain. I always get a little bit nervous when we’re on top of the mountain because the kids love to run all around up there and I worry that somehow they’re going to topple over the edge-yes, I know there’s a protective fence, but I still worry! Lil’ Nut wore herself out and slept the whole way home. I bet the public school kids didn’t have as much fun on their first day back in class as we did!
