Homeschooling at the Holidays
Holidays can be challenging time for homeschooler moms! We want to be able to do all the extra homemaker duties that come around that time. Cooking, hosting, making sure everyone has clothes that look presentable (and outerwear, too, if you are in a place that gets chilly like me!).
I think we Canadians have it a little easier, because with our October Thanksgiving, the holidays are much more spread out. And we have had it easy for weather this year, with an unusually mild autumn.
But around that time in November, things in homeschool land can start to get a little hectic.
I mean, you’ve got pies to make. Turkey to thaw and brine (do you brine your turkey!? It’s the best!). Linens to iron. What’s a homemaker to do?
Picture the activity sheets flying from your handy homeschool mom printer with a cape on!
I know worksheets don’t actually solve problems, but sometimes it is nice to just take a break from normal curricula, turn on a great audiobook or playlist, and get the kitchen prepped for pie-making while the kids are happy doing a fun pencil-in-hand thematically holiday-ish activity booklet.
Maybe, while they are at it, you can take a deep breath and a minute to pray!
I love this little poem for those hectic moments.
For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food,
For love and friends,
For everything thy goodness sends.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

We love fall walks, but this year in our new town, we went cranberry picking at Thanksgiving and now my freezer is stocked! I think that will be a new tradition for us.
