Homeschooler Moment #3

So I went to the library and checked out a copy of the old classic Jimmy Stewart movie, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. I told the kids I wanted to watch it for a number of reasons: it’s a good old movie, it has lots of historical value, it teaches a lot about how government works, how bills are passed, etc.

My 16 years old son listens patiently and then asks: how many subjects do we get to count it for? At least I’m teaching them the value of getting the most out of every situation, right?

It does seem everyone wants to be able to multi-task these days. I hope to teach my children to relax just a bit in this ever chaotic world. It is sometimes good to get multiple lessons out of one.
