My Homeschool Christmas Wish List 2014


I can’t believe Christmas is next week…..are you ready?  I would like to say that I am, but in all truth and reality, I am just not.  Where’s the Christmas snow? Ha!

Hopefully you and your homeschool are ready for a much-needed break.  Will you be taking time off before and after Christmas?

As we head into the New Year, I have been thinking a lot about how I will approach the rest of our homeschool year and how we will dive into the new one.  Will there be changes?  I have made a homeschool Christmas wish list for myself for the rest of 2014…..

  • I wish that I wouldn’t fret about work that isn’t completed due to busy schedules and sickness.
  • I wish the clutter on the tables, floors, and corners would miraculously disappear at a snap of a finger.
  • I wish my kids would obtain information as quickly as a computer….;)
  • I wish one homeschool curriculum would work with all three of my children.
  • I wish that our homeschool days would speed up a lot faster, while keeping the kids young and innocent.
  • I wish team work and cooperation was instant routine in our homeschool.
  • I wish that all of our events and activities were across the street instead of thousands of miles away….sure feels like it some days…;)

My ultimate MEGA homeschool Christmas wish?

That I had a homeschool fairy that would magically appear to take over when I’m exhausted or just don’t feel like being a homeschool mom for the day.

The end.

Did I get a laugh out of you?  Hopefully this made you smile.  I know we can all relate in some way, shape, or form.

Many blessings to all of the homeschool families out there.  We are doing this to better our kids!
