One On One

I love the flexibility of homeschooling. When we just can't do it, we take a day off. But I do try to keep the train a-movin so that we can have a break before the summer session.

Sometimes, one of my little kidlets will just not be motivated to "do school" so I have developed the "School or Work" Program. If you don't want to come to school, I have a list of those big jobs that always need to be done; cleaning out the pots and pans cabinet, straightening out the linen cabinet, washing windows and hand prints from walls. Today, 2 kidlets did work and 1 kidlet did school.

I must say, it was so nice to focus on just 1 kid for a day. (And my house smells so clean! LOL!)
