Has spring arrived where you live yet?
It has where we live. Sunny and temps in the 70s. In my mind this is perfect weather.
Too perfect to stay inside.
But what about that math lesson? Don't we need to do that?
What about squeezing all that reading on the AO list for week 8 into week 8 on the calendar?
Relax Mama. I know you want to be diligent in your children's education. Me too.
But pushing too hard at all those things you "should" do without ever taking a break – that leads to burn out.
Ask me how I know.
These sunny 70 degree days aren't going to last forever.
Before you know it they will give way to the sticky humidity and heat of summer.
We won't want to spend all day outside anymore. We'll want to stay inside in the air conditioning.
Which means that we'll have time to pick up the pace again on the math and reading and all those other things.
We'll be refreshed and ready for it after slowing our pace for a few weeks to enjoy this window of perfect weather.
Sounds like a win-win situation to me.
Enjoy these days while they last.
I give you permission….
