  1. Homeschooling the tech addicted 5 year old, on a night schedule

    When my husband and I first realized that our son was as much a night owl as we were, we realized that life was going to be a little bit interesting. We realized this, btw, when he was about 4 days old, and the nurses began to panic that none of his first tests of the day were coming out right, but every later test was fine.

  5. First homeschool field trips for the tech addicted 5 year old

    Getting the 5 year old out of the house is always a struggle. He'd rather stay at home and play by himself or with us, than go out into the world. This last month we have decided that more field trips must happen.
