  1. I miss homeschooling for this very reason — all these fun classes we used to take! We spent 1.5 years at the aquarium every other week for a science class. Best.Class.Ever. I’d love somehting like this one you mention!

    1. Aww, Dee! That sounds great! I love hands on learning. I’ve never really done homeschooling though I did do school-like activities with a schedule for my preschoolers (way back when they WERE preschoolers) and 5-6 neighborhood kids. It was a lot of fun!
