This week has been so busy! Not the run around till you drop kind of busy,but the buckle down at home and get back into our studies busy!
We have pulled very full days of school and thankfully we get today off where we get to meet up with some other homeschool families and play. Well the kids will all play,the teen age girls will “hang”,and us mommies will get to sit and breathe for a bit!
It’s also Friday which means it’s time for sisters n’ cloth’s breastfeeding blog hop.
The week’s topic is I breastfeed and……
Well I’m sure you can all guess what I’m going to say. I breastfeed and I homeschool. We started this practice right after we started back to school after baby was born. Homeschooling for the last 8 years I have learned how to adjust to things pretty well.Although I do like to stick to schooling in the morning so I can help my other two with their homework when they get home from school.
My favorite time though homeschooling now that we have baby here is when we start by reading our book. We largely do literature based unit studies and right now are working our way through the Narnia series. So in the morning when it’s time to read. I grab Ms Squishy get her settled and we read a chapter and discuss the questions,all from the comfort of our couch,before moving on to do the days activities.
Usually,Adrienne falls asleep before we’re done with the chapter and by the time we’re done with questions she is totally out!
Well earlier this week Kenna was giving me a break and when I walked into the living room this is what I found:
Squishy sound asleep snuggled up to her sister,as Kenna read out loud to her the Guardians of Gahoole guidebook.
These are the moments that I know I’m doing something right…..
