Ok,  I'm one of those moms who always has schoolwork on me...for emergencies..lol...

Where is the weirdest place you've ever schooled? 


We've done some doozies : 

1) Canadian Immigration when I accidentally ended up in Canada when trying to see Niagara Falls

2) courthouse - I had to fight a ticket..lol..

3) side of the road - when we had a breakdown

4) the parkinglot of my dh's work - when a tornado came through - we had just arrived to pick up my hubby. We live in the north east where tornadoes are really rare, but I launched into a lesson on storms to keep the kids calm as we bolted for the basement of dh's work..lol..

what about you?

Just curious as to how you end up in Canada and not know? There are signs everywhere! I'm not bashing, seriously asking because dh did the same thing when he first moved to the area and he wasn't even trying to see the falls. I grew up in buffalo and went to the falls often, and just don't see how it happens.

for me, I've brought work to the doc offices for ds. Sometimes the appointments are really long.

Not sure about in the past but we are taking a train soon so we will be adding a train to the list. I never take anything more than books. My son's favorite textbook is Garfield comic books. LOL.

Lol, ok we live in CT, but I had taken the kids to visit family in OH. We drove back through upstate NY just to see the falls. Coming from oh, there are 2 exits for the falls. The American and the Canadian. I took the American exit. The traffic was terrible. All along this road there were no real signs, just these little blue square pictures of a waterfall...no arrow or anything. So I took them as a good indicator of direction. After a time in traffic I realized the traffic was so terrible because of a bridge wat the end of the road. But I could see the falls just a bit out of the corner. We got on the bridge (in very slow moving traffic) and could see the falls on our left. Then as we approached the end of the bridge there was a sign, "Welcome to Canada" and I thought, "oops!" Lol. When the guard stopped me I told him I didn't want to enter the country, but it was too late, there was no turn around. So we had to go into immigration for 4 Hours! Then we had to do the same when we got to the American side of the bridge. The bridge was as close as my kids got tot he falls. I gave up..lol.

like most of you have said, school can happen ANY where!! : )

other than the places that have already been named, I could add field trips, amusement parks, camping trips, swim meets/practice and sporting events.
