We had errands to do and so we decided, on the spur of the moment, to take the opportunity to go to an event planned by the Battlefords Homeschooling Association. They were meeting at the Territorial Drive Alliance Church from 2 until 4 p.m. for sports in the gym or board games and cards in the Fellowship Hall. When we called Eva to rearrange Alisdair's German lesson, she suggested we could take Roland along. He is also homeschooled (due to a liver transplant and not wanting to be exposed to germs).
There were three other families there -- and the boys enjoyed playing a bit of informal floor hockey, trying to shoot a few baskets and then they played UNO and Yatzee. The group are planning to have another get-together on Tuesday, February 8th.
One of the ladies is the organizer for the four planned ski trips to Table Mountain. So it was nice to meet them and get more information about these events that are especially for homeschoolers. It's kind of nice living half way between the two homeschooling groups -- so we can participate with the folks in Lloydminster when it is convenient and with the Battlefords Association, too!
