People ask how I do it all the time. The real answer is I don't know. Somehow we just do. But 1 thing I love about homeschooling is that we decide what we want to do and what we want to learn about each day. Today as I was baking a cake for Tate's 5th birthday, the kids got to eat popcorn and listen to an audio novel. This is 1 way that I get a break while they are still (quietly) learning!
