I love having the kids home. No school means no morning routine: No packing lunches, (their chore, but still) no homework in afternoon, no rushing out the door… I know I am lucky enough to have a work schedule that allows me to be home with them. Though, now that I think about it, it really wasn’t luck that made that happen. Scott and I made some financial choices that made it possible for me to quit my full-time job to be home. And, I love it when they are home with me!
