The months of November and December were a planned homeschool break for us due to moving, celebrating birthdays and Christmas. We returned to our “in session” homeschool lessons and practice the Monday after New Year’s.
On that day I recorded an actual homeschool day in the life.
The first day back to a routine is not the most representative of our “typical” homeschool day. I keep our academic schedule light when we first get going and also I’m usually full of energy in the beginning of a new school term.
As my enthusiasm waxes and wanes and as we follow our individual interests our days take on unexpected twists and turns.
If I was writing this in two weeks or next month my day might look like a morning at the library followed by an afternoon immersed in books.
Or an exhausting morning of errands followed by an afternoon of documentaries and a hot bath (the first for the kids, the second for myself).
There is no typical homeschool day for our family.
