We all struggle, it is inevitable. But what can we do as homeschooling families when the days don’t go as planned?
We can choose to panic, that school won’t go as planned… much like life…. or we can have a new lesson plan for the day and live out peace… as much as we can.
This week, Elise broke 3 bones in her arm. There were definitely some challenging moments. However, we took advantage of a slower pace. We lit candles and a fire in our fireplace. We sang songs together, read Bible story books. We had friends over. And of course we did a lot of crafts.
We may not have checked every box on our curriculum list this week. But we grew in our relationships and took some time to recover. I hope my children will grow up and honor the seasons in which they find themselves. Sometimes you need to dance and sometimes you need to cuddle and sing under blankets.
