We had a fun day at the park with Jack's cousin then we went to Mammoth Cave for Bat night. We were able to see the infrared cameras and use night vision goggles. We got to see them capture a bat in a net. Then they weighed , measured and identified the bat. Up close bats are actually kind of cute.
Jack had his first day of Homeschool co-op classes. They just meet twice a month and most of them are fun and educational so it breaks up the boring routine and he gets to see his friends. That is the hard thing about homeschooling only one child , is trying to keep him socialized. I think we have the socialization covered between recess at the park with his friends, seeing his cousins every week , co-op , field trips and clubs at the library. His first co-op day was fun. He has science , time and measurement , art , building , ancient civilizations, and look who's talking. He learned the steps to an experiment , what is a hypothesis, and was able to see an experiment. He learned why we have universal measurements , and about Mesopotamia.
