Ditching Home School

One of my favorite things about homeschooling is the freedom to drop everything and go.
I'm great at that, ditching what I should be doing for something else. I've gotten much better at sticking to my responsibilities over the years but I am a sucker for a resort pool and Downtown Disney.

So when our first week of home schooling came to an end and I got an invite to a friends condo- I jumped on it! Justin and I took Friday off of our first week of school and headed to Orlando for hang with my good friend for a few hours.

We hung out in the pool, played some killer water volleyball and ate a homemade, yummy spaghetti lunch!

While waiting for lunch I hung out on the balcony with my friends 2 year old. He rocks. Really. I have so much fun with this kid. This time around he tried to throw everything he got his hands on to the ground 3 stories below.
He's quick and got 2 things fired off before I realized what the heck was going on. First was some piece of paper and second was his father's insoles- oops. I finally caught on and when he grabbed my can of coke to throw I blocked him! A wet win for me!
Anyway it was a well needed break from my daily duties.
Here are the pics of what ditching home school looks like for us.

I think I had just told him he couldn't throw anything.

Is he not the cutest?

After the pool we headed to Downtown Disney. Here I am with Eduardo the bowling pin- don't ask.

Eduardo at the Lego Store. The displays around the store are so cool.

This picture is from a whole different day- a day when we did ditch the normal way home for an alternate route- look what we saw, it's a Florida dog deer.

So how about you- when you ditch your usual plan what do you like to do?

I just love to wake up sometimes and declare it a "jammie day" and we loaf around all day. AHHHHHHHHH

While beautiful, the impervious surface on which the dog dear must stand with what appears to be a huge gas-guzzling SUV just a few feet away makes this picture quite sad. Quite a commentary in and of itself.
