Like normal kids, mine frequently get tired of school, tired of winter, tired of routine. While I don't consider myself a draconian homeschooler by any means, my vision for what the school day looks like and theirs often differs. In response to my academic directives they have dubbed me "Pax RoMomma." Meant as an insult, I feel it is truly a badge of honor. I'm considering having buttons made!
