Wanna win?

One of my friends is having a free giveaway on her blog. All you have to do is visit her blog and leave a comment and you might win a really cute teacup! Visit her blog here.
Home-school is going great so far this year. Today will be day 3. It is more time consuming. It takes about 2 hours a day but we are all loving it! The Hippie LOVES science and the Genius has been enjoying spelling words and science. I am amazed at both of them. I mean, the Genius is not a REAL Genius but I bet she is reading above her grade level and the Hippie is only 4 but is reading most 3 letter words now! I am impressed! I love having them home with me too. Sure, sometimes I still envy my friends their long, free days without kids, but I love hanging out with our girls all day long.
Last night my hubby and I had a date night! We did the whole dinner and a movie thing. It was GREAT! Have a great day and remember to hit up that blog for a chance to win!

AND you get it all done in two hours/day... as opposed to wasting hours and hours in regular school.

Having to be with nasty bullies on the bus & playground ...

Having to wait for innumerable reviews of the same information when you already understand it ...

Having to go to (shudder) public gym classes ...

Home schooling has a LOT going for it!

Home schooling rocks. Although the 2 hours of book work may seem like less learning time than in a long day at school, it really is not. I bet they don't get that much actual learning time. And never in a month would a child have 2 hours of one on one teaching. It is amazing how fast they learn at home. They would n't be getting close to reading at public K-garten. They would be learning /a/ this week. And practicing counting to 10. I know, I taught Kindergarten.
