My favorite time of our homeschooling day has to be the morning songs. We always start our day by lighting a candle and singing a couple of song to start the day, Good Morning and Appalachian Spring.

(Good Morning)

Good morning dear Earth,

Good morning dear Sun,

Good morning to the trees...

and the flowers every one.

Good morning dear beasts,

and the birds in the trees,

Good morning to you and good morning to me.

-----------------------------

(Appalachian Spring)

Tis a gift to be simple,

Tis a gift to be free,

Tis a gift to come down where you ought to be,

And when you find yourself in a place that is right,

It is in the valley of love and light.

Those are beautiful songs. The second one has been a favorite of mine fit a long time. I have to say that Bible time it's our favorite. We sit on the couch and what might start out being a 15 min lesson turns into an hour of questions and looking to find the answer.

 With our son, he didn't do well early in the morning AT ALL. However, by 10am he starts to function very well. He also does great until around 5pm. So, I try to do his school work from 10am-5pm.

typingCome check out my blog at http://www.tidbitsofexperience.com/. I'd love to have your feedback there.  Also it lets you know more about me and my family. Hope your having a great day.

 My favorite time is when we are all discussing a subject and the time just flys by and we don't even notice it. lol  The kids love to learn school this way.  My little ones even get an opportunity to join in and help discuss.  :)

These are beautiful poems.  I especially love the second one.  :)  Thanks for sharing them.

When I see them get something they've been struggling to understand, or a new concept they were just learning it reminds me why I homeschool.  I also take pride when they remember things I taught them and reiterate it to others later on.
