Well we pulled out of traditional school four years ago and have been homeschooling since. I’m still amazed at how peaceful homeschool mornings are compared to the chaos we used to call “normal” back in our traditional school days.
On this particular morning, my son really wanted to start his lessons before anyone else was up, dressed, fed and ready for the day.
As I sip my morning tea (side note: my husband is awesome and brings me a cup of tea in bed every morning! Thanks honey!) my son brought his “explode the code” work book, the teacher’s guide and his pencil to my bedside. Who am I to stop educational pursuit! Haha!
There I was sipping my tea and giving language lessons from bed as he happily did his work.
When his sister woke up, she thought life needs to be fair; therefore, she wanted her explode the code lessons on mama’s bed too!
We knocked out language lessons in our jim jams on mama’s bed in such a loving and peaceful way, with none of the rush we felt on traditional school days.
Chilling with my kiddos, sipping tea, answering the occasional question, etc. Eventually, we did get up, but when we were good-n-ready.
Four years later and it still impresses me! And I wonder how and why parents still run around in that crazy rush hour morning mess, when life can be so peaceful…

We have been homeschooling for 7 years and every once in a while I ask the kids if the want to go back to school and the shout NO. It is a nice feeling! My oldest attended 1st grade when I finally pulled her out. We are trying out a coop classes this year as we are starting to think about high school, it makes the schedule busy but the kids are enjoying themselves so we will see if we continue next year with it. Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog and enjoy homeschooling your children it is really an awesome experience for families committed to educating their children… We love it
