This week, for the first time since 1993, I am home alone without my children.
For the first time in two decades, I have not spent the entire summer scouring homeschool catalogs. I have neither read nor reread a single homeschool “how-to” book. My dog-eared copy of the treatise on classical education, The Core, sits, for once, ignored on my bookshelf while I have, instead, busied myself buying backpacks and these things called “Pack-Its,” which are apparently lunch pails with built-in freezers.
