    HI i just saw your response to my intro. It's been a crazy month. We are not homeschooling yet but will likey start at in the fall. My daughter requested a few months break which is great!! We go to Raleigh twice a week right now for my youngest to see the Chiropractor. Would be great to connect one day.

    I came across your spreadsheet and I think it is great! I am new to homeschooling and your spreadsheet is exactly what I was looking for. If you don't mind me asking, what did you use for kindergarten?

    Thank you,

A Day in the Homeschooling Life

Monday morning.
Seven o'clock, sun's up, son's up. DH makes me a cup of coffee, and the cat demands her breakfast.
I shower, and DH is off to his conference call. Kiddo and I start laundry, eat breakfast (in his case, second breakfast), and get him dressed.
