We are in the midst of a Joint Learning Session. What that means is three times a year homeschooled children and the children from the mission school come together in the classroom for a few weeks. Our school year is kicked off with a session, we have another one in December and the last one in April. We started this session August 8th.
Normally the Joint Learning Sessions focus on a point in History as the theme and many extra-curricular activities are offered since there are more children and more parents to help. During this session, a woman who works in Finance offered her talents to teach Martial Arts and Ballet two afternoons a week during the three week session.
Yesterday when the boys were in Martial Arts, the instructor asked each child a question about Karate. Many responses made me chuckle, but one answer made me chuckle more than the others.
Instructor: “What don’t we use Karate for?”
Child: “To kill people.”
