What about sick days? Do they count in our 180-day requirement?
My philosophy is we learn 365 days a year. It’s our job to document 180 of those days. If your children (or you) are sick and don’t feel like documenting, then skip it until everyone feels better.
If your kids are reading, watching educational streaming or documentaries, etc., then you can document and count attendance (even if they’re sick, they’re learning).
I remember when my whole family had a bug and there was a “History of NASA” documentary series on TV. We spent the whole day watching one episode after another, just enjoying it (and learning a lot from it). We counted and documented that.
Homeschoolers don’t have “sick days” like the schools do. But we have better – 365 days to work with.
