As I think about getting ready for school, some of what I think on requires doing some cleaning and rearranging, and then I need to think about how we do school in our house. Perhaps you do the same thing as you prepare?
We use our kitchen (naturally) to do cooking. I hope to punch that up a wee bit this year and get my lad making more meals on his own. I want to teach him how to make a white sauce, cheese sauce and bread. (and how to play around with those recipes a bit). After all, it's good for him to learn these things.
My lad does his veritas press and math sitting in my chair first thing in the morning.
