H is for Homeschooling Through The Holidays!


Homeschooling is a difficult task all in itself on a great day. Add a little normal life to that and it gets a little hard to handle but when you add stress of the holidays you get extremely hard to handle!

We have homeschooled for over 9 years this year and here are some tips I have found to work well with our family along with the stress of Thanksgiving, family gatherings and Christmas!




1. Breathe

Seriously. 

Sometimes so many chores and activities make it hard to know what you are supposed to be doing. Don't let the hustle and bustle take your joy of the season away. 

The craziness only happens one time a year so just understand each day is a new day to begin completely over. Lay down your mistakes and burdens from yesterday because today is new!

2. Prep/Organize

Prepping your meals could be a huge life saver this time of year. I am naturally an organizer and I have to plan my meals weekly or else I feel completely lost looking for what to cook the hour my husband is due home.
