Simply Homeschool

We’ve had a really good week back at our full schedule in homeschool. After a great Thanksgiving week, with a light workload (yet, a heavy life lessons work load), I was happy to have a good first day back.

Our schedule is loose, yet structured.  I love that everyday brings new life lessons into the mix.  I love having the kids involved in all aspects at home-chores, decorating, cooking, outdoor work, etc.  They are learning skills each day that they will need when they grow up.

We are experiencing very warm weather here in our neck of the woods as well. So that meant lots of outdoor time.  {absolutely essential for growing bodies and minds}

One of the best things I have done for our schedule is to take a long mid-day break.  We finish up with our schoolwork around 11:30,( eat lunch at 12), and don’t start back up until 1:00.  This time is used for me catching up on emails, laundry, dinner prep, etc.  The kids spent their break outside today, with only a quick stop for lunch.

After our mid-day break we are doing a mid-day prayer time to refocus before we begin our work again. It’s a great way to keep God in the forefront of our minds.

As this time of year begins to get busy, I am enjoying our rhythm of the day-having a structure yet keeping it flexible for life.  After all, how else do they learn about life, but by living in it?

Are you looking to lessen the busyness, clutter and stress in your homeschool? I explore all of these things in my new eBook Simply Homeschool: Having Less Clutter and More Joy in Your Homeschool. It is chock full of lessons that I have learned on my journey that bring joy into your homeschool-and most of all- glory to God.  Remembering *why* we are homeschooling, which often gets lost in the clutter of life. I encourage you to check it out by clicking here.

Keep posted-starting *tomorrow* I will be starting the series on Simply Christmas-lessen the stress and focus on what matters most!
