Tara finds that having two younger daughters in addition to Abby, nap time is our primary block to accomplish school. Abby and I were able to complete a lesson, along with her other subjects, during nap time without being rushed or stressed. I was able to spend quality one on one time with my kindergartner. If for some reason our schedule was off, we could easily include a curious toddler and newborn. It worked well in either scenario. Summer (who just turned 2 in July) was just as eager to learn and explore as Abby.
During our unit study on plants, I asked my husband’s aunt to join us for one particular lesson. She’s an excellent gardener and Abby loves her dearly. We also asked Abby’s cousins (ages 4 and 7 at the time) to join. They enjoyed the lesson as much as Abby!
