Hands on learning and family time.
Am I saying that you can't have these things if your child is in public school? NO. But I personally feel like I'm able to soak up these experiences better when I'm their teacher.
And recently, in between "field trips" and long reading lessons, dinner has looked a lot like this:
|Basalmic Pork in one and braised white beans in another|
Meat in one crock-pot and veggies or potatoes or beans in another. Normal people would put them all in one, but I like having differing flavors on them.
