Our Homeschool and Homemaking Link Up Weekend

Often times, people will ask about our homeschool and wonder how I can possibly do everything it takes to bring these 8 kids up right.  Well, my definition of "bringing them up right" might be a little different than yours...

In our homeschool, we read lots of stories in bed in our jammies.
You might even catch us at the table doing school work in our robes and bare feet!
Sometimes I even let the kids read comics in place of classics!!

There's always time to put on a George Washington costume before sitting down for a geography lesson.
I might even agree to a week off so a project can be finished!

Sometimes I let the kids snuggle on the floor together while their other siblings slave away at math or reading.
Believe it or not, a quiet reading place can always be found somewhere!
When we take turns treating one another like royalty, everyone feels special!

We learn to work through life's wonderful distractions.
We even play with our food!
We work out problems together---(yes, that IS a three-year-old playing with scissors)
We share our talents with one another.

When it's time to do chores, we attack them with the force of superheroes!
We always try and keep our senses of humor in tact.
With all this fun to be had, how can I resist?

Thanks for stopping by this week's Homemaking Link Up Weekend! I'd love to have you join us.  Please link up any and all home/family/craft/recipe/etc. posts below!
