Homeschooling has many important benefits that I have mentioned before. There are countless more small advantages that may seem insignificant, but which we cherish.
Exhibit A: Kids sleeping in on a cold morning, and then quietly cozying up in the living room while I fix their breakfast. John was still in bed when I took this picture. Isaac is under the blanket in the armchair. The school bus had left our street about an hour earlier. I love winter mornings like this.
Exhibit B: Celebrating our first harvest together from the orange tree I planted five years ago. This year, for the first time, it produced ONE orange. Each child got two wedges - it was so funny!
LOVE Becky's expression in this photo!
