Because on any given day, this is what the kids are doing on their own:
Attempting to measure themselves with John Paul's measurement chart (math)
Reading. All the time. Everywhere.
And John Paul frequently disappears to do research throughout the day - he wanted to find out the order of bones in "Dry Bones" so he consulted his anatomy book and got carried away...
Family & Consumer Sciences
Art (Cecilia), Math (John Paul)
Handwriting & Spelling (but heaven forbid I try to get him to do copywork...)
Math (playing blackjack, or "21" which sounds less gamble-y)
Cecilia said, "If I add a D, it'll make the word CARD!" (Spelling, reading)
And religion again...
So you can see why I struggle to give an answer when people ask what we're "doing" to homeschool the kids. What are we doing? Um... Nothing?
