My topic at The Homeschool Village this month:
In our home (and most others, I’m sure), when life happens—births, deaths, illness–academics tend to grind to a halt so that we can deal with the immediate needs of the family. New homeschooling moms ask me frequently how I handle homeschooling with a newborn in tow. Having introduced three new babies to the family while attempting to teach my older two children their 3 R’s, I’ve discovered that this aspect of homeschooling family life is not a bug. It’s a feature.
