Pre-schooling

I can actually see how people with lots of kids come to the conclusion to homeschool.

Not that I would do it, because I think there is so much more to learn socially and emotionally in a regular school setting.

But it has occurred to me on during our many days of quarantine over this cold winter that I’m kind of starting to resemble a pre-school at home.

Now that I’ve reorganized my house a bit, it seems like there are natural centers.

Lego center for fine and gross motor skills as well as executive function.

Last week the twins didn’t leave the house all week! They didn’t seem to mind, there is more than enough stuff to keep them busy.
