How Does That Work

How is it working out homeschooling with a new baby in the house? Are the children still learning? Are you still teaching? Are you getting any sleep? How are you not sleeping and teaching?

Well it's working on autopilot. The kids are working in their books. I take a few minutes to send a small lesson by email. I take a minute to answer a question here or there or give an assignment. I have even been reading with each child individually. I am using TIVO to record educational shows, and the children are still progressing. It's amazing, but things are still moving ahead. Eight year did a presentation on the Maya, 12 year old is conjugating Spanish Verbs, baby is not latching onto the breast, and I am getting bits of sleep here and there. Oh and hubby is filling in the blanks and spaces everywhere while working our business.


  1. It sounds like you have your hands FULL.

    I'm glad it's going well for you. I'm sure the older children are glad you're still being there for them as much as you can, and the baby, of course, is just happy being a baby.

    Do you have a La Leche League in your area? They have wonderful services to assist with breastfeeding.

  2. I do have a La Leche League in my area, I'm hesitant to call because a bunch of well-meaning advice got us in this mess. I feel like only he and I can work it out at this point.

  3. I understand that feeling of juggling way too well. But, it works with love!

    I was just coming over to thank you for making my SIT's Day special!

    Blessings to you,
