After much striving towards certain forms, reminiscent of a schoolroom, and many hours trying to put them into practice, I have concluded that it is necessary to modify our homeschool day.
Many activities, wonderful though they may be, were designed with a group in mind, and really do not work with just two or three individuals. I have read many times that it is not wise to try to create school at home, yet, unbeknownst to myself, I was still, in many respects, doing just that!
Sometimes, it is hard to purge certain notions and habits regarding schooling. But we learn, and modify, and reach ever upward.
