When my girls were small we began our homeschool day with Ladies Coffee Hour. None of us were drinking coffee, but coffee is a symbol of friendship and fellowship, thus the name. We gathered with our hot tea or cocoa and had our Bible time, read-aloud time and Mom's Morning Meeting.
Love my first cup of coffee in the morning. Usually pour it about the time we all sit down together to do our bible time and book discussions. A most agreeable way to start the home school day!
Yep. We're in our second year of home schooled high school with our 15-year-old (plus an 8th and a 3rd grader), but when I started working from home I found it was hard to put my "game face" on for work or school without that morning latte. Thus, for years I've done a "mini commute" before the school day starts, listening to audio books and just being alone as I drive to get the coffee. (Have I mentioned my awesome husband who makes this possible?) Having that "margin" helps me keep my perspective and my sanity.

I was sipping my first cup of the day as I read this! I love my coffee!
And I am very thankful that I found your blog! We are about to begin our second year of homeschooling. I have a 16 year-old junior and a 13 year-old 8th grader. I have read and watched almost everything you have! Your transcript webinars helped me create a transcript for my 16 year old that just got her accepted into a local private Christian college for dual enrollment this year. I can't thank you enough! I plan to keep reading and watching - while sipping my coffee!
Lee and coffee make everything better, don't you think? Keep up the good work!

Hi Lee. I'm so glad you shared this "older" post, it's beautiful 8-). I love afternoon coffee but most days tea is at hand. If I was visiting I would wait expectantly for those words, "Whould you like me to make coffee?" (hee hee 8).
Looks like I need to be drinking MORE coffee... oh, say 7 cups a day?! A cup for each reason, right?
I forced myself to like coffee 2 years ago for some of these very reasons. I craved the social aspect of it, especially with my husband.
The summer before our senior year, I decided we would begin to "homeschool college" with CLEP® exams. I wanted to do it in the summer so that we could include passing scores in my sons' college applications. Since their senior year would be in community college, I wanted to know which courses they would pass by examination so they wouldn't
