first, check your local laws about the age at which kids can be left all day. In many states it's 12, but a few still have a higher age limit.

My best option was to work nights, while my husband worked days. In health care, that was easy, I just got 3rd shift, which pays better anyway. For a realtor, that is likely not possible, but you will be able to center a lot of your work on weekends, so you and your husband can take turns.

I'd back away from overreliance on workbooks. Workbooks will fill the requirements, but that's different from real understanding. I figure, if I wanted my kids to do busywork, I'd have sent them to public school. I think a lot of the key is going to be arranging your schedule to work mostly when your husband is not working. And, perhaps you might be able to arrange practicum volunteer experiences for the kids that will give them some "hands on" practice with specific skills and subjects that they are studying.
