Tomorrow is a homeschool "vacation day" for us, not just because it is a traditional American holiday, but because the hubster will be home. And strangely, when my husband is around, we tend to want to goof off. My significant other is an obsessive outdoorsman. So, on those rare weekdays when he is off work, we tend to head out into the great outdoors and explore stuff. We take day trips to state parks, hikes near and far, and nature walks almost anywhere, and I've always thought that was just as vital a part of my children's education as the time they spent doing "formal learning." For that reason, even though he isn't drilling them in grammar or checking their Spanish, I still think of him as an equal partner in this adventure.
What about you? How do you feel about the contribution of your spouse/partner in your day-to-day homeschooling?
