One of the joys of homeschooling is watching my kids interacting and watching them grow closer together as siblings and friends. Ellen, age 11, LOVES to cart around Baby Evelyn, and is a huge help to me when I’m working with the other kids. And Evelyn LOVES being with Ellen. One day, while I was working on spelling with the younger kids, I noticed the house was very quiet. Too quiet. I got up to investigate and discovered the girls, snuggled up together on my bed, completely zonked out.
