Last week the big boys caught the colds from the wee ones. Since I am not a merciless slave driver I gave them a bucket next to their desks in case they had to stop working long enough to toss their cookies. No, actually we took a couple of days off but now they will have to do some catching up since some of their classes are online and therefore less forgiving.

Our kindergartener promptly contracted the same cold back from them and got sick again. Fortunately that doesn’t phase his school work since he still has just as much energy as always. It’s turned out pretty nicely having him on a schedule of work rather than the very loose lessons that comprised his preschool education. He is old enough now for me to tell him to complete X Y and Z before leaving his place at the table. That leaves me a few free moments to attend to our toddler or do really important things like take a bath.

Homeschooling is the kewlest thing one can ever do for their children, bar none. Those individuals who argue about, “Well, how about their social skills?” and this and that don’t truly understand. It is exquisite to watch our children growing right in front of us. It is a treat to be able to teach them everything we know too.

The is no doubt, when homeschooling families have it rough, their efforts to persevere are always rewarded.
