Here is one of many things I LOVE about homeschooling and why I think I would have loved it as a child. I think the new term for it is dramatic play. This particular afternoon we had lunch and the children scattered to finish their lunch break and when I called them down they had been playing dramatically. A was the damsel needing protection from T, the armed...well I can't remember who he was exactly! Hey, I can't keep track! They continued reading in character.
Hey, Mr. Hero, I thought you were supposed to be reading? Mid afternoon nap time? Ahhh...I will come while you are unawares.
Shiver me timbers!! It was a trick and my plans to steal the damsel have been foiled again!
