One of my favorite things is when I do a read aloud. And the teen boys still love it. Cozy family time. :)

Reading about Paleo and Raw Food diets is inspiring changes in My diet! Just enough to want to add lots of veggies!

I agree! After homeschooling for a decade or so, I always found myself swinging from being too relaxed to being too schedule-driven. There was the constant concern about whether I was doing enough to prepare them--and then there would be days that I'd just take the day off.

One of the things I loved was that we could work on projects that needed to be done, like getting the firewood stacked or weedeating the hillside. The kids needed to take a break from the books once in a while, too.

Reasons I love homeschooling that I have seen from yesterday and today. Yesterday we made chocolate chip cookies for math. Today I'm starting to get stressed about other stuff that I need to do (scouts, bills, cleaning, etc) so the kids are just working on their subjects they can do without me and I'm taking a day off :) No stress!
