The same thing happened last year right around this time. I get caught up in the book lists and projects, adding way too many things to our to-do list, going on too many field trips, and generally running us all ragged.
I need to simplify.
I need to stop feeling obligated to read every book that is recommended in our history and science curriculum.
I need to be selective and use our time wisely.
I need to stop planning far-away nature outings and spend some time in our own backyard.
I need to breathe.
I need to remember that even though the things we're doing are good, there can definitely be too much of a good thing.
I need to enjoy this week of spring break, and come back refreshed and renewed, prepared to finish our school year well.
I pray the same refreshment for you.
