For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

The homeschool Village: How do you refresh?

It’s Thursday and it is time to meet up with the Homeschool Village.


This week’s theme is: What do you - homeschool mom - do to get refreshed for the next school year?

Well, Refresh? What is that? Oh you mean recharge? Do we ever? Once a mom, always a mom!

With that being so, we do need a break. and here are some of the things I do to give myself a break, and not only during the summer.

  • Take a vacation. I have been blessed these past 2 years to be able to do so. last year we went to visit some friends in Michigan for a week, and I can tell you there was no school talk. This year we are going to fly to Martinique (which is where I come) from for 3 weeks, and I can tell you there won’t be any formal schooling going on.

  • Plan for the next year

  • Read

  • Re--organize things around the house

  • Enjoy time with the whole family (picnics, outings, games etc…)

Want to know how others refresh, make sure to visit Layton Family Joy blog.
