It would be easier if school started in January and ended in October. With all the holiday stuff to squeeze in and then the post holiday blues to deal with in the new year. And New Year is all about new beginnings. Of course I am saying this now as I really really don't want to grade school work. So it was perfect timing when I saw this article today about Homeschool Burnout.
Thankfully we aren't doing our bowling league again till the Summer. So we won't have to disrupt our school days to take field trips as much. But as it is I already have half our weeks planned in the next 6 weeks. Its hard to say no to everything that comes up but sometimes a little down time is just what you need.
