Guest post - Sabbath WEEK from Crazy Home Daze!
We homeschool year around in order to take advantage of the more 'temperate' weather and work through the crazy heat from May-September. We take breaks when we need them. But that's just it. Many times we wait until we NEED the break - have to HAVE the break - and are near burnout situations.
I've heard of doing X number of weeks 'on' and taking a week off, but just haven't implemented it.
Then this week hit....and we took our own rest because we just NEEDED it.
A few days ago, I heard about Sabbath Week from Renita at Crazy Home Daze . Renita is a homeschooling mom of 4, a Tapestry of Grace friend, prayer buddy, fellow reviewer and blogger. Her explanation of this week of rest - essentially 7 weeks 'on' and 1 week 'off' inspired me to change how we schedule our school year.
She explains what Sabbath Week looks like in her house and how she goes about setting her schedule.
Please - check it out Sabbath Week for yourself . You will be blessed!
