At the beginning of November, I talked about taking a long homeschooling break between Thanksgiving and Christmas. And I am incredibly glad that I took that time, both for myself and my kids. Instead of spending days trying to make sure that we got in everything on my school list, we spent our days doing crafts, baking, reading Christmas stories and general merry making. Now, from this small sampling of what we were doing, it is clear that we didn’t completely stop doing school – just stopped more of the formal lessons. I think that it worked well for us, and I plan to do this again next year.
Due to everyone still being sick, I am not completely done organizing everything, nor have we started school again yet! But, I think that once everything is put in its place we will be ready to go! I have a lot of exciting projects planned for us, and I also have some new books to read in order to help me continue to adjust our schooling style to fit my kids. Because what is the point of homeschooling if I can’t customize it to my individual children?!
