It’s late May and it’s so easy to be stressed.
Now, I don’t mean the type of stress from end of the year parties and teacher gifts.
I mean the stress of moving our family from a full-time homeschool schedule to a summer schedule. (You know what I’m talking about, right?!)
You’d think it would be easy for us to make this transition! After all, can’t we just say “we’re done on this day” and put away the books and that’s it?
Maybe. Maybe not. But I’ve never found it to be that easy!
However, one word has set me free in this area:
What does it look like to use rhythms to transition in and out of a homeschool year?
How can this simple concept ease the transition (and stress) as we adjust to a new summer schedule?
And looking forward, how can rhythms make it easier to transition back to school in early September?
I wrote about the revolutionary power of rhythms (and how I had to learn to throw my homeschool schedule out the window) in my book Plan to Be Flexible: Designing a Homeschool Rhythm and Curriculum Plan That Works for Your Family.
For the past ten years, I’ve had to learn–the hard way–how a gentle rhythm in and out of a homeschool year really makes a world of difference in the transition between “school” and “non-school” times.
But how does it happen?
That’s what I want to share with you about.
