Why You Should Take a Break from Homeschooling

Two weeks ago, we officially finished 1/3 of our school year, which is 60 days of school. With a required 180 day school year, our year is quickly moving along. In fact, it has been a whirlwind. Admittedly, I don't know where the time went. A combination of my own doing and general circumstances of homeschooling four children creates whirlwind days. These days can leave any  homeschooling mom tired, drained, and in need of a break. Today, I have compiled a listing of reasons to take a break. These are some of the blessings of taking a break.

10 Blessings of a Homeschool Break

  1. gain some rest
  2. rejuvenate your imagination and get the creative juices flowing
  3. take time to assess the school year and decide if anything needs changed
  4. catch up on regular household chores that sometimes get neglected
  5. complete that major project that has been postponed (maybe actually do the fall cleaning before spring starts, or finish painting the baseboards in the kitchen - oh, sorry that is just my house)
  6. have time to renew a hobby or interest, or start a new one
  7. take care of all those errands and appointments which keep getting postponed
  8. carve out some time to see or connect with friends
  9. shop or peruse the internet for something other than homeschooling materials and ideas
  10. find the joy of homeschooling again

Everyone needs a break now and again, even those who love their families and homeschooling.
