How long do you "do school" in a day? I'm panicking a bit.

That's true! Man, I'm still getting used to this whole homeschooling thing, and I'm so paranoid. lol
When I read this I started thinking about all the things the kids do that I don't consider "school" but could definitely fit in. The kids LOVE books on CD. They listen to Curious George or Bible Stories almost every single night. Curious George even "learns the alphabet" and they follow along in the book with the letters. That is totally school!! LOL
The boys also play a lot of games together and watch documentaries (like we watched a movie on volcanoes under the sea the other day... Can we say "SCHOOL"?!). Honestly, we also have a lot of conversations over lunch or whenever about how we get sick and why, why we need bones, etc, etc. I guess I just didn't think about how much of that stuff we do and the fact that I can include it in the time requirements.
Thanks guys! I feel a lot better now.
This revelation makes my life a lot easier.
Mom to Titus (12), Isaiah (10), Noelle (8), Joel (6), Hannah (4), Elijah (1), and baby due Nov 4!
