None of our days look the same, but they all share a similar rhythm.
At 6:00 a.m., I’m usually the only one awake. (I’m thankful to finally be in a season where I’m up before my kids: it wasn’t always like that!) The first thing I do is head to the kitchen to make a cup of coffee.
I enjoy the quiet time and get an hour of writing in, then head out the door for a quick run.
The kids are just waking up when I get back. I hit the shower while Will gets breakfast started.
After we say goodbye to Will, we finish getting ready, and then dive in to our schoolwork.
We call our brand of home education classical unschooling. Our curriculum is classical, but we’re pretty free-wheeling in our implementation. We also leave lots of room for self-directed learning and independent projects.
