Home schooling had yet another blessing in store for us today. When we started to consider home schooling years ago, I anticipated some of the benefits we might encounter. These included things like tailoring each child’s education to their own specific needs, and training the kids in godliness right alongside all of their others subjects.
But to my surprise, it’s been the little blessings along the way that have really been fun.
One of these benefits is what we call “Couch School.” Today we are having couch school, because a couple kids are feeling crummy…. runny noses and scratchy throats: nothing serious enough to keep kids home if they were go-to-school kids.
But because their little bodies need some extra rest, we just snuggle up on the couch with blankets and pillows and gently continue on with our learning. Snuggling, science, pillows, flashcards, reading, sketching…. natural, comfortable learning full of love.
