Where oh, where... is my motivation?
This question wrecks the minds of every homeschooling parent. You've been going strong all year long and now, my dear, you are short on creativity, energy and motivation. First we have to be honest with ourselves....we are human and with other issues to handle, it's easy to loose focus. We place our entire lives on hold for the betterment of our children's education & character....and we are truly blessed! When I need a boost of homeschool motivation, I've found that taking time off from our regularly scheduled program does the trick! Even if it's just for one day, doing absolutely NOTHING for a day always helps get my creative juices flowing. This works for us, because we school year round (with the exception of two weeks in the summer), making it OK for us to skip a day or two ;)
