Taking Breaks

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

                       

 

Do you take breaks during the school year? As we are approaching Easter, I encourage you to take a break from your school routine. This will help you and your children to relax a little. It will also help your children to absorb the lessons you have been teaching them.

Sometimes, we get a litte gung-ho as homeschool teachers and want to just keep pushing through the lessons. I want to caution you that this approach is hard on you and your children.

Take a week off and do some fun things! If you have some areas in your house you need to declutter, work on one at a time and have a reward each day.
Taking a week off gives you some balance in your life. It gives you and your children a chance to do some different things.

You can take that field trip you have not been able to fit in. You can break out the craft supplies that you keep meaning to get out. You can read that book that you wanted to read.

Have some fun this spring!

Your Zone Mission today is to declutter the flat surfaces in your Living Room.

 

Your Home Blessing for today is to wash sheets.

My menu plan for Monday is hamburgers and a salad.

Have a great day!
