It’s time for a new school year! If you are like me, you need a fresh wind, refreshment, encouragement, inspiration.
Sometimes the excitement of the subjects we are going to tackle fills me with enthusiasm. I love to learn! Yet, I remember the papers to be graded, the reminders I need to give my children, and the struggle to maintain the balance between homeschooling, homemaking, and the rest of life.
I need to be reminded of why I began homeschooling. I need to remember the good fruit in my children now and the greater fruit that is yet to come. I need to be inspired with new ideas and practical tips from older homeschool moms.
Here are some things I do to prepare my heart for the next school year:
- Count My Blessings
- Read Articles
- Listen to Podcasts
- Attend Online Conferences
Count the Blessings of Homeschooling
I look at my children and thank God for all the love, kindness, and virtue I see in them. I praise the Lord for how they are growing academically and overcoming struggles. I remember that Jesus has helped me homeschool every step of the way!
I thank the Lord for other homeschool families on the journey with us. And for the opportunity to build close family relationships in our own home.
Read Articles & Blog Posts
I love to read new (or vintage) articles from homeschool magazine like The Old Schoolhouse Magazine or my tattered copies of The Teaching Home (from the 1990s). Blog posts are great, too! I glean so much from the wisdom of other homeschooling moms and dads.
Listen to Podcasts
There are several podcasts I enjoy. They refresh and inspire me!
Yet, I love to see faces of other homeschool moms and dads. That’s why I love online conferences! So much encouragement in a few days or one week.
Become a Homeschool Super-Hero
I love Homeschool Super-Heroes Week (Aug23-27) so much because it’s the calm away from the storm of normal life. I love that storm, but sometimes I need a break. Super Heroes Week is filled with content to encourage and refresh me, and you too.
After all, what do we as homeschoolers need more than anything?
Well after coffee (or tea) of course, we need support. We need to know we’re not alone. We need community and words of encouragement.
