Winter Blues & Homeschooling
I had an email with tips for teaching math all queued up and ready to send, but the winter blues were on my heart and mind.
I’ve felt pretty stir crazy lately.
It’s almost spring, but not quite. We’ve traveled a bit, which provides for nice breaks, but it’s hard to get motivated after a week of vacation. The curriculum feels boring at this point in the year and we’re all feelings on top of each other inside all the time.
Maybe you can relate?
There’s a bit of trudging through to be done, and that can be a good thing.
It’s a good chance to remind ourselves to rejoice in the Lord always! To choose contentment in every circumstance. To fix our eyes upon Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith. To do all our work heartily as unto the Lord, and to do everything without grumbling. (And to speak these truths to our children in grace & love.)
A few not-very-complicated changes we're trying are:
"Let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we shall reap, if we do not give up." - Galatians 6:9
How are you feeling about homeschool these days?
