It’s that time of year when we, as homeschool parents can use a little encouragement and refreshment. Burnout is something practically every homeschool parent will encounter at one time or another during their homeschool years. What can we do about it? Besides the big one: prayer, we can also be prepared for when burnout strikes. Our TOS Crew members have some advice and encouraging words for you in their posts this week. I encourage you to visit their blogs and kindly leave a comment or two to let them know how much you appreciate them taking the time to share their thoughts during their busy homeschool days. We hope you enjoy this week’s cruise!
