So our morning can be a little more relaxed.
I was woken by lots of laughter just outside our bedroom. I went to investigate and found the boys reading these awesome poetry books.
Kids, boys even, reading poetry, before breakfast? What's going on?
Surely they should be fighting over the tv, having mum get grumpy at them because they aren't getting ready fast enough, and just generally dragging their feet?
Yes that was what our mornings used to look like, and sometimes does still if we have to be somewhere early, but one of the joys of homeschooling is we can take our time to get into our day, which means we can enjoy our day more, the kids will absorb information far easier and we can all wonder in ourselves harmoniously.
Maths and Poetry before breakfast! By choice! How amazing!
