School Sharing

kids with backpacks

I love having both my kids in the same school. I can drop them off together. They hold hand and head down the hall together. When my son told me about Mozart’s great music called blah blah something, my daughter remembers the music lesson. It was Eine Kleine Nachtmusik or Night Music. I can look at one menu to decide whether they should bring or buy. There is one open house, same concerts, same picture day, I could go on. So efficient! My kids are two years apart so it will be this way for another year before my daughter moves to the next school in our district. They will meet up again for one year in middle school and then again for three years if they keep eighth grade at the highschool.  It made me think of one room school houses and how kids of different ages can learn the same material at different levels of understanding and even help each other. Seems like such a natural social way to learn and what we naturally do as moms.

From the movie Amadeus…

  1. There is so much benefit for being at a school with lots of different ages. For a kindergartener to be able to see older (junior high and high school age kids would be such an added benefit.

    It’s nice that your kids get to walk together! I love the illustration.

    Also, I love love love love the movie Amadeus. That’s one of my most favorite. I love everything about it. It’s just so well done.

    Thanks for sharing.

    • Another benefit of homeschooling I would think is the multi-age learning.

      Great movie! It is funny though that we expect such perfect behavior and for our kids to do well in school when so many of our idols were neither.

    • Not always! I had to tell my daughter to wait up for my son 2 times this week at drop off. Oh and the hand holding didn’t last very long but I have it burned into my memory.
