Newborns and Homeschooling

Life is busier, but homeschooling is one of our very highest priorities, so it is still getting done. I do nearly as much work with dd7 as I did before the baby was born. Dd5 is lucky to get a few minutes of "schoolwork", but I don't feel too bad about that--the girl can read and she doesn't start kindergarten until August!

One key to being able to work so much with dd7 is staying with the newborn constantly. Who knew breastfeeding and teaching academics could be such compatible activities? I think I first went to the bathroom at noon yesterday, and dd7 is getting good at retrieving her homeschool materials upon request.
