The kids went gang-busters for 3 days straight so they could take the day off today. I am so impressed. It takes a fair amount of organization and planning not to mention motivation and discipline to get a week's worth of lessons done in 3 days. All we have for today is my reading aloud 2 chapters from Harry Potter. Wow.
I have put some homeschooling books on my PaperBack Swap wish list. I am the only member wishing for either book so I might get lucky and get one of them soon. I hope so, they look like excellent books. One is on creating unit studies and the other is a sort of almanack of activities based on the seasons and holidays. I'd love to get either one.
So today is reading aloud... maybe the kids would like to help bake cookies or something, or we could all play a board game or go for a walk. I love homeschooling, it is mostly just so relaxing. There is no rushing to catch the bus, no forgetting lunches or homework or sneakers or that today was picture day. Jake can sleep in, Zaak can wear his pajamas all day if he likes, we can stay up till midnight looking at stars and not have to worry about sleep deprivation. I love being in charge of the rythym of our lives!
