Homeschooling is such an important part of our family life, and both Jim and I have made compromises over the past few years so that we can educate our boys at home. One of the biggest decisions that we have made is to choose jobs that give us the flexibility that we need to keep the kids with us during the day. The good news is that, for the most part and with some much appreciated help from loving grandparents, the boys don't have to spend time in either school or day care. Still, one of the costs is that between my work schedule and Jim's, there is precious little time when the four of us have a day of together.
Today was one of those rare and much appreciated days. We celebrated by heading off to Blue Mountain for to try out their mountain roller coaster (no cameras allowed, sorry!) and then spent a bit of time by the lake in Collingwood.
It was peaceful, quiet, and wonderful to have some family time.
