I started morning time before I knew it was almost at the registered trademark level in the homeschool community. I didn’t call it morning time (I didn’t call it anything, really), but I found that the best way to get our bible and other faith-based learning in was to do it first thing.
I’m over zealous when it comes to teaching my 2.5 year old. I admit it! I’d love it if we were doing daily alphabet coloring pages and arranging numbers from 1-10, but Ty has a low tolerance for coloring and we’re still working on identifying our numbers, much less ordering them. If my idea of “preschool” was completely bound to this traditional idea, I’d be stressed and frustrated with him (still am sometimes…).
My kids are young. Really young. My oldest is 2.5 and the youngest just turned 1, so the fact that I say we “homeschool” is probably laughable to some. But homeschooling is simply receiving one’s education at home. Age doesn’t really matter. We might not be sitting down with the workbooks, beakers and protractors (Ok, we are definitely not doing that!), but I still like to think of us as homeschoolers.
