I found my son's "work" after our quiet time and I really get a huge kick out of it!!! He loves writing, copying so much!
One Monday morning, he declined to go out with the grannies and his sisters (their usual "homeschool" Mondays with the grannies), and he decided he'll have school on his own. I gave a list of what he needed to do and he set out to do them. Finished within an hour and he was mighty proud of himself. I am proud of him too, of course.
