Wow - what a year it has been. Private school -- homeschool -- Konos curriculum (fun, but a lot of work for this new-to-homeschooling mom) -- My Fathers World Exploring Countries and Cultures (love the layout and the ease, my kids are bored with it now) -- to who knows what! So, I find that we are a bit burned out. Looking back, perhaps we should have spent more time deschooling. We didn't get real schooly right away, but we didn't take a long break from schoolwork either.
So, we're starting over - we've been deschooling for the past month. School at home work is non-existent currently. We've been watching some classic movies, doing a lot of crafts, working on personal projects. It seems to be helping with the homeschool burnout... I don't know exactly how or when we'll get back to school, but for now what we are doing seems to be working (or at least not hurting).
Until next time!
