Homeschooling On The Go – Taking a Break! Can you believe it? Three Busy Bees have been “home” for a month? What is wrong with us? Well, nothing is wrong with us. We finally decided to start schoolwork again. Oh, and our co-op started back which means I have 3 classes to teach each week. Yes, I said 3 classes which means I have 36 students plus my 3 bees at home.
What is it like to stay home? It is awful. I have been in a funk for most of the month because I just want to go somewhere awesome. This time last year, we went to Stone Mountain to see the leaves change colors and the Georgia Aquarium. This year, we survived Hurricane Matthew by staying put. Let’s just say that I miss being on the go. I miss being in our little camper.
Homeschooling On The Go – Taking a Break!
One would have thought that I would be catching up on photos, blogging away past trips, and enjoying the ease that comes with being at home. No, I am not. I have literally sulked and stayed in bum mode. Maybe I have let an entire month get away from me for no other reason than that I was pouting about not traveling. I have serious “First World Problems”. Okay.
I have spent a lot of time whining about what I was doing but I did figure out a schedule for Bubba. It has saved me many headaches lately. Bubba knows that each subject is timed now and he can’t spend his time procrastinating. The timed subject schedule has helped not only our sanity but also the bond and respect him and I have for each other. I should have had a timed subject schedule years ago.
The downtime also helped us with a mini remodel to the kid’s floors and making sure the homeschool room was suitable for all three kids. Maybe we all needed the time off. Do we have any travels plans coming up? Yes, we do. We may go to Atlanta or South Florida. But we aren’t completely sure on what is going on just yet. As for the actual holidays, we usually stay home and have others come to us.
What do you do for the holidays? Do you travel a lot with your family?
