It’s February, often known as the doldrums of homeschooling. The newness of our curriculum has worn off and the momentum of those resolutions is starting to wane.
It can feel as if we are in the trenches, repeating day after day – wake up the kids, feed them breakfast, pull out the books, do the lessons, make the lunch, repeat, repeat, repeat.
And if we are not careful all this repetition will lead to burnout. I’ve been close to crashing and burning around this time of year more than I care to admit.
Over the years, I have learned that I need three things to avoid burning out in our homeschool.
Through the years, three things - resting, prioritizing, and organizing - have prevented me from crashing and burning in the doldrums of homeschooling.
It’s taken some time to adjust and I’m not always the best at keeping these things at the forefront. But when I do, the end result is a healthier me, which in turn creates a happier homeschooling experience for all of us.
