I was leery, but gaming with friends has turned out to be an awesome way to practice social interactions with real-life consequences.
We spent the week stacking new habits onto old ones, aiming for a little bit more structure each week until we ramp up to our full fall schedule.
When we have a fun, outdoorsy week like this one, I’m so thankful our summers don’t end with butts in desks.
Week “at home,” yet we’re hardly there with all the outdoor time, the friend time, and the adventures. Hooray!
Highlights this week: Four out of five week days outside – 11 hours. Also, we did a field trip to the zoo + a knife store! And a big group hike to end the week with the best kind of tired.
Highlights this week: A quick weekend trip to Moab with all the hiking! Then back home to play + snow, games + friends!
Highlights this week: Wilder can drop in on half pipes now. He finally took the plunge on our garage ramp, so we had to get out and practice!
Lots of post exist about the benefits of gameschooling, in particular its whimsical, non-worksheet way of checking off skill progression boxes while spending time together with your family. What could be better?
Highlights this week: Some family time with my parents and a late Xmas together, paired with outdoor exploring after their exit.
