Some may say that homeschooling will give us more time for other things to do. On the contrary, for some reason, our schedule is almost always full that we find ourselves not having enough time for extra-curricular activities even if our homeschooling schedule is not so rigid to begin with.
From the time that our son was less than a year old, we have trained him to pack away. At 10 years old, he’s expected to be considerably an expert at this. For some reason, in this department, it is still hit and miss. I think he’s gotten used to me being around to remind me of his responsibility. For the most part, it’s not uncommon for me to get frustrated over how this home office looks like.
So we haven’t really formally re-enrolled our son to a music class. With so many considerations to factor in, we just were not able to place that on the upper rank of the priority list.

It has been a while since my husband stood as Teacher Papa to our homeschooler. That will change very soon as he steps up to schedule regular guitar lesson sessions with our very dear student. Instead of enrolling him in a music school, personally training and teaching our son will not just deem practical for our pockets but will also be rewarding as this could also mean a regular father and son bonding time for them.
My husband and I are plenty thrilled even as we recently registered Jed to a soccer clinic that he will attend throughout the semestral break. Hubs has been into soccer for as long as he can remember. That’s just one of his passions and we love that our homeschooler will be able to do this during the sem break. Technically, we really don’t do sem breaks as we homeschool. In fact, we go on with our regular homeschooling schedule even during times that we hear from the news that classes are suspended. That just don’t apply with us since we are not affected by typhoons since we stay indoors.

Since our curriculum is based on our son’s pace, we are not pressured into completing anything at any particular time.
