If anyone wants to know how I "do it all" in one day, my answer is always the same. I DON'T. Here is a quick look at what my house looks like, right now, at the end of a normal homeschool day. Warning! Not for the squeamish or Type A personalities.
my living room couch
my horrendous pile of dirty laundry
my stove-top, both breakfast and lunch dishes are still out...about to start dinner
our classroom in its natural state
Brings to mind the saying, "Sorry for the mess, but we live here." It's so important to be in the here and now, with your kids. The dishes can wait, but they can't. Be present, in every sense of the word.
