The daily routine of a homeschool family can be a mysterious one to a non-homeschooler.

So, how long does homeschooling really take?

The long walk left us chilled, so hot cocoa in front of the fire was a must when we got back home. Everyone needed to chill out, so we did a quick search on Netflix for good documentaries. We were so excited to find one on Richard III, the protagonist of our latest history lesson.
He was the not-so-nice king of England that allegedly locked his two nephews up in the Tower of London so that he could be king. He was later killed in battle defending his crown, but was overrun by the House of Tudor…Henry VII to be exact, father of the one we all know…the one with the wife issues, Henry VIII. Richard was buried in the tomb of an old church, but the church was since torn down. There was actually a parking lot built over the basement tomb and archaeologists dug him up! They learned that his back was actually crooked, like all the legends said it was and they also learned exactly what killed him in battle and what his face probably looked like based on his facial structure. But, I digress…I can’t resist a change to talk about English history! (#myfavorite)
We snuggle up in warm blankets to warm our toes while we get a visual delight of the very thing we had just read about–history coming to life on screen. All eyes are captivated, save the teenager who’s upstairs working on his science. I’m getting laundry done while we watch, because that job is done every day, or else we drown in it.
