A Peaceful Day

Generally, homeschooling at our house is chaotic. The baby is getting into something. Someone needs wiping. Someone needs help with math. Another one is in tears because the same thing she did yesterday, today is too hard. The baby needs changing. Everybody is hungry. No one has any pencils. I need more coffee and then the phone rings.

Today was not one of those days. For a few blissful minutes, all was peaceful. All was calm. Everyone found something constructive and even educational to do and I found myself just sitting there, sipping coffee and remembering why I do this.

Pepper busy with magnets

Sunshine playing school bus with his truck (he sets the Little People around the room and drives by to pick each one up)

Banana Boy explored symmetry (except for the broom) with the Cuisenaire rods

Daisy worked on math (and didn't WANT her picture taken working on math)
