A Language Immersion Day

Today was one of those days when homeschooling is at its best!

We had two little visitors all day -- friends' children who are being raised bilingual German and English. It was a wonderful chance for us to practice our German -- we played German and English songs (a tape series from the library, "Teach Me German" and "Teach Me More German") -- and half of them are real German nursery songs. We also baked banana-muffins, whole-wheat rye bread and generally had a grand time -- all while learning German words and appropriate phrases. Ain't homeschooling a wonderful time to learn?

This works well as it looks like we might just be headed to Austria this Fall!
