Spaz Attack

Thoughts from a big spaz who has lots to spaz about.

there are so many advantages to homeschooling. i see it, yes, but i'm to scared to take the plunge. if i homeschooled, i would spend all my days doing what i love best- leisurely teaching and learning with my boys, NOT scrambling to find time to get everything done. what would my day look like? wake up, make a quiet breakfast, do house chores together, read together, do "school" which would only take about an hour and a half, look up an recipe online to make for dinner, go to local farmers market to pick up fresh ingredients, make dinner together, work on learning a foreign language, go play at the park, take sports lessons from  a professional, practice piano- which we never have time to do now, and so much more. i imagine my days would be so relaxed and less hectic and we would spend time as a family.

right now, i have so many things i want to do with the boys and so many things i want them to experience.  after i pick tyler up from school, we get home on average about 3:00 and he is in bed at 7:00 to read until 7:30. that doesn't leave much time at all for anything extra. basically, we can do one extra activity and homework- that's about it. plus, after a full day at school, he is so tired that i don't get the "best" of him.

where do parents find time to do things with their kids when they are in school most the day?! i'm trying to figure this out.
