We've been starting schoolwork at the undogly hour of 6:30 am. We're both wide awake at that time, and have much more focus for sit-down work. This means that we've been finishing at around 11am (not including our afternoon history sessions), and having lots more time for life skills (aka - help your parents and learn how to run a house).
And Making Sushi
(with the sweetest visiting cousin)
And you know what?... He loves helping.
It gives him a sense of worth. He becomes more independent.
And he grows - in all directions.
So, don't forget to make time for the life skills.
