Today I'm thankful that homeschooling works for us.
This week our family is battling illness.
Yesterday we sat comfortably on the couches to do some reading and math pages. Then by lunch time I was in desperate need of a nap. So I passed out on the couch while the kids learned about the Revolutionary War by watching "Liberty's Kids."
Today the kids are playing with Pattern Blocks while listening to an audio book of A Christmas Carol.
Homeschooling is allowing us to go at our own pace and take a more relaxed day when we need to, yet still be able to do some curriculum even with illness. If the kids went to public school, they would be missing out on important instruction by taking a sick day and be behind. Also, my nap yesterday, which went until dinner time, would have caused a problem for pick-up time.
