What does a typical day of homeschooling look like?
- A calm, sunny morning, with all the kids quietly and productively at work: one son is working on math at the big table, a daughter is reading history, the youngest is working on keyboarding and times tables. Mom moves between them as needed to help, then gets a few of her own things done.
- School is getting done, but only Mom can tell. One son is in his room working on his computer, the daughter is making dinner, and the youngest is building a crane out of Lego Mindstorms. (That’s computer science, chemistry of food, and engineering/programming, in case you are curious.)
- Mom races around town, dropping kids at the Food Bank, a guitar lesson, and the climbing gym.
- Friday afternoon and no one has gotten very much school done this week because life has intervened: someone is sick, a crisis comes up, Mom is needed elsewhere, a friend is in town, there is fresh powder on the ski hill all week.
- All of the above.
If you answered "All of the Above", you are right – sometimes all in the same week.
