But those days are few and far between lately. Today we have dentist appointments. Tomorrow we have Bible study. Wednesday we play violin at a nursing home. Thursday we are HOME (I turned down a field trip because I need one day at home). Friday I have physical therapy.
Our new normal.
More often than not, the girls are with me for these appointments and activities. Two minutes before we are walking out the door I find myself throwing random things into a tote bag so they have something to do. After some thinking and going through resources, I came up with the idea of having a "school bag" filled with worksheets, activities and books that we can take with us.
The items I put in the bags will be different from what we normally do at home, hopefully making them exciting and inviting.
So here's my recipe for making a "school in a bag"
Get a tote bag...
Fill it with all sorts of fun and/or educational activities...
and then remember to take it with you!
