I always wondered why homeschoolers would sign up for so many physical ed-type classes. Maybe I am just lazy, but our kids got plenty of exercise loading wood, helping dad split the wood, shoveling snow and just general working around the yard. Dirt cheap and great for the muscles. The kids in my family are important to the functioning of our family. When they don’t do their part, the rest of us (mainly the adults) suffer, since we have to do more work.
