B is for balance. Homeschooling can take up every single day if you let it. Some curriculum products will literally fill your day from 9 to 5; if you sign your children up for every outside activity that interests them, you could end up with a schedule that will burn out you and your children simultaneously! Instead, strive for balance:
Balance teaching time with free-learning opportunities.
Balance inside time with outdoor time.
Balance math time with art time.
Balance time as a group with time alone with each child.
Balance is the key to long-term homeschooling.
