The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week…
We have had the week off from homeschooling, from ballet and from work. We did have guitar lessons, a birthday party, a sleepover to attend and the heater tuned up.

We basically were as lazy as possible.
In our homeschool this week…
We have had the past two week off from school. We will start back up on Monday.
Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…
I have learned over the years that it is better to take time off during the holidays than to try to work through weeks that you know are going to be very busy or stressful. That time off will pay for itself several times over.
My favorite thing this week was…
Time to read for pleasure. I have really taken off this week -- no grading, no planning, nothing. And I refuse to feel guilty for it either. There will be plenty of time in January to catch up on my grading.

Things I’m working on…
No projects at the moment. But I am trying to be more organized with my blogs. This will be a work in progress though.
I’m reading…
Graveminder by Melissa Marr and Climbing Parnassus by Tracy Lee Simmons.

  1. Sounds like a wonderful week. Being as lazy a possible is the best thing to be during the holidays, and I'm already regretting that I wasn't.
