We are headed right on past the middle of November here, and our homeschooling is starting to feel the pull of better weather outside combined with lots of holiday things to do. So how will we ever catch up after our trip and stay that way while the holidays move through? How can we make the holidays a Spirit filled, holy time without losing track of the progress we are trying to make with academics?
I think I need to set up some serious priorities right now:
1. I need to stop skipping my morning devotions. Sure it is hard to get up and I would sometimes rather read my email first, but putting it off just means that it doesn’t get done.
2. I need to meet with each child, each day. EVERY DAY.
3. I need to keep a running journal of these school “meetings” So that I can give them their assignments properly. I don’t think this is the time for long range lesson plans, which will just leave us feeling behind.
4. Weekly library trips need to be reinstated. ASAP.
So there we are, Holiday CPR for our school year.
