My children never cease to amaze me, and oddly enough, I learn from them more often than from a book. Today, I learned its OK to see the world diffrently. So what if the assignment doesn't match the work turned in? Isn't art suppose to be an individual thing? Is it really art if you do it exactly like the book tells you to?
When I think about it, homeschooling is quite an "out of the box" way of thinking to begin with. Should I be surprised when my lovely Princess A takes an assignment and tailors it to fit how she sees the world? No, I think I shouldn't. Independant thought is one of my ultimate goals here.
