Homeschool Journal (with My Favorite Elf!)

Crafting with my favorite little elf, and sick days later in the week: one is obviously more fun than the other, but we can accommodate for both because of this blessedly relaxed and flexible home-educating life of ours.

In my life this week…

We were *thisclose* to being featured in the local news as a family who strives to teach our kids the real meaning of Christmas. It was a very last-minute sort of thing, and we didn’t respond in time, but I’m honored that we came to mind as that kind of family.

In our homeschool this week…

We’ve been playing with modeling clay! It’s so fun; I forgot how much I love it.

Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…

Make time to play.
I know, I know: the kids need to learn math and history and all that — but they also need not ever forget how to play. And I don’t mean just send the kids out to play; you play, too! If you’re like me, you may have nearly forgotten how, but homeschooling is a great opportunity to re-learn. So go play!
