This decision has been coming for several weeks. I’ve tossed it back and forth but the last few disorderly weeks have shown me that I need to switch to homeschooling year-round.
Now, before you think I have lost my marbles, let me tell you that I lost those a long time ago. Seriously, ask yourself, “How much time do I spend educating my child?” If you are like us, your home is an educational environment and learning is happening whether formally or not almost all the time. Honestly, I get exhausted after about six weeks.
Then, when you consider that I am not planning lessons for a solid year and need to plan every few weeks plus I am somewhat lazy, it just seems logical to school for four weeks and then take one week off. There has only been one thing holding me back.
I blog what we are doing each week. If we are taking a break, what in the world am I going to write about?
Today, the solution came to me.
One the weeks we are on break, I will be sharing product or book reviews, ways to play, art projects and more. Seriously, I have so much rattling around in my brain that I want to share but I just don’t have the time to blog it all. This will give me the perfect opportunity.
To help you know where we are in our year, I am going to add a calendar to the sidebar so you can see how I am dividing things up.
I am really excited about this change for our family and for the blog. I hope you will enjoy it too.
Do you homeschool year-round? How do you break up your year?
