On our last trip to the library, the kids at the school across the street (Moore Magnet School) were outside for recess. Hannah sees a group of kids playing anywhere and she wants immediately to jump in and join them. I could just read the look on her face...how much she wanted to be among those kids playing. I remember the fun days of recess, and I could not help but feel horribly guilty in that aspect. Hearing all the kids shouting and chattering with excitement, she asks me what they were doing. I told her that they were having recess. She said something to the fact that she wanted to have recess, too. I said to her, "Well, you get to have recess whenever you want!" She shrugs, somewhat agreeing. I don't think this is something she thinks about every single day (as far as I know :/). Just a few days ago she asked me when she was going to her new school and meet her new friends. I guess she thought everything we've been doing has been practice before "real" school. Hm. I know she loves homeschooling, but I think it might all just be starting to hit her that we're going against the grain here. I hope she grows to love it so much that she wouldn't want to have it any other way.
