Here is how Nikki spends most of her days. The dog is held so much her feet rarely touch the ground. Dancer even carries her in and out to piddle. We sometimes joke with Dancer that Nikki will forget how to walk. Okay, case in point. As I type this, the boy walks up to ask a question - carrying the dog! I guess we can add that a benefit of homeschooling is that your pet gets to come to class with you everyday.
