There are many, many perks to being a homeschool family. One of the best is bedtime, for us at least. Since we don't have to be catching a bus before the sun is awake, my boys have the greatest bedtime. We put them to bed anywhere from 7:30-8:30. And then their bonding time begins. They read books, share secrets, slay dragons and all things in between. I hope when they are old and gray, they look back on this time as pure magic. I know that is how I see it.
