“Obviously different areas have different field trip possibilities and different group dynamics (some are bigger/smaller than others, some are more active than others) but this gives you an idea of what the social aspect of your homeschooling CAN look like, if you want it to. Sometimes we get so busy socializing we need to catch up on our academics! And if Covid makes all these socializing ideas impossible this year, just remember that the kids in school aren’t getting to socialize much either. All of us will be suffering pretty equally this year unfortunately.”

There you have it, homeschooling doesn’t mean sitting at home by yourself with your kids. You can have many fun field trips, socialization activities and more.
