Lunch - It's the best part of the day

I've decided that my favorite part of our weekdays is lunch.  And it has absolutely nothing to do with the food, even if we do manage to make a trip to Chick-fil-a.

On our Classical Conversations days, we get to spend our lunch visiting with some of the most down to earth, precious people we know.  The kids play and chat.  And I get to laugh and chat.  I've said before, Tuesday is my favorite day of our homeschool week.

The rest of the week, we use our lunch time as our read together time.  There is something precious about having all three children with a 5 year age span sitting together listening and discussing and debating about what we're reading in history and literature.

Our history tracks along, to an extent, with where we are in Classical Conversations.  We're behind right now because this year's cycle has moved pretty quickly, and what kid wants to zoom through things like the Crusades and the Black Plague?

As for literature, we've read biographies like Gladys Aylward, fun stories like Ralph S. Mouse, and classics like The Magician's Nephew.

There's no better way to pause during the day than to pile up together and read good books.

What's your favorite part of your day together?
