Ahhh..... the cold wind of December. The tunes of Christmas dancing in my head. The joy of reflecting on the greatest gift ever given. And to top it off, a break from book work and schooling pressures. This month we are enjoying a more lighthearted approach to learning, which really means playing, creating, relaxing. Thanks to a great sale on a particular curriculum we use, we are awaiting the arrival on some new materials and will begin again in January. With a new plan. Hopefully a better plan. We haven't really remained as consistent with our schooling as I intended. But after reading "Are We Making Progress?" in The Homeschool Minute last week (a weekly e-newsletter from The Old Schoolhouse Magazine), I learned that it is normal to hit a slump about this time of year. Whew! What a relief to realize that it's not just us! So we are taking a break, and putting together a plan to start again in January.
Here's an interesting video link that landed in my inbox this morning:
Blessings of joy and hope to you!
