So my family and I are in week two of homeschooling. It's our first year and as scary as it sounds, it's also very liberating. So to sum it all up, we spend a lot of time in the library. I mean a LOT. This is a good thing because I love books and hopefully my son will too someday. More than books, there are also a lot of cool DVD's, audiobooks and music to borrow from the library. We recently got a chance to listen to "Here Comes Science", a music DVD from the band They Might Be Giants....
