There is just something about the weekend. 2 days of no school. I love my boys dearly (and my daughter too, but she's in public school now) and for the most part I do enjoy homeschooling. But some days... Some days I just itch and chafe at the thought of learning one more thing about mountains--or the human body--or diagramming sentences! In my head there is a little rebellious voice that says--"we did this already! do we really have to relearn everything??" Especially when I think of all the other things I could be doing instead--like reading a novel (oh how I miss quiet reading time!), or listening to sermons online, or just sitting quietly and watching the snow fall. I remind myself over and over that those moments will all come sooner than I imagine. In just a few years my kids will be grown and in college (my youngest will turn 12 in January!) and I will have all the free time I can handle.
So now, I look forward to the weekend just like my kids do! A break from school--time to do whatever we want. To enjoy a good book, catch up on laundry, or just veg out in front of the tube! I love me a good weekend!
