Our three "littles" are in public school and when the big yellow cheese wagon rolls up here at 8am and takes them off, a quietness descends on our day. The homeschoolers have plenty of time to do their school work, read their favorite book, do their chores, go shopping with me and take walks or play basketball before the bus brings the "littles" back eight and a half hours later.
I don't know what they do with these little guys at school for all that time, but it doesn't make a lot of sense to me that they finally return and still have homework to do. This is a very patient six year old who really just wants to run around and play but has to sit and write out his spelling words one more time.
