Little Moments



Homeschooling starts at birth. Homeschooling doesn't just happen when we sit down and specifically, intentionally teach our children. In fact, I would dare to say that the majority of homeschooling happens in those little moments.....

....when we read to our children.
....when they help us mix, wisk, and scoop in the kitchen.
....when we take them grocery shopping with us.
....as they help us fold the clothes.
....as they help us "clean" the house.
....as we have little conversations here and there....

And these are the moments that are most precious! What's even more precious is when we see our little ones teaching the "even-littler" ones. :)

that is so true.. all of what you said.. how much they learn when you are just living and not necessarily focused on "lets learn xyz today".. and I too love to see them being taught by their siblings.. jas reads to the boys quite often.. all of our favorite time of the day is when we all pile into my kingsize bed (daddy and doggie included) and read aloud..

I agree 100% with you. I homeschool ALL day long, not just during "school time"
