Homeschool moms are a busy lot. In addition to teaching the children, they generally have responsibility of the home, shopping, cooking, errands, and getting the kids to any and all outside activities. Most homeschool moms I know rarely find time to take care of themselves.
So, this week, members of the crew are sharing their ideas for how we can change this. Come along and learn more about Taking Care of the Homeschool Teacher.
Brandy @ Kingdom Academy — Mommy Time
I have found out the hard way that a mommy who doesn’t take a breather every now and then often becomes a cranky, impatient, short tempered woman! So, with that in mind, I try to make a habit of snatching a few moments to myself every now and then, where I can rest, relax, and recharge.
Wendy @ Life at Rossmont — Pampering the Teacher
Jesus is our example. “[He] often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.” Luke 5:16, NIV.
Kristi @ The Potter’s Hand Academy — Who Cares for the Caregiver
There are 24 hours in the day, and you feel like you’re in movement during all of them. Even in your sleep, you are dreaming about lesson plans and recipes and… Yeah. Been there too.
Karyn @ Teach Beside Me — SuperMom (Myth vs. Reality)
We all look at others and see their strengths and compare them to our weaknesses. As a homeschool mom it can really be a challenge. So, I thought I would share a little of the reality today. I am not a Super Mom. I am a very regular mom . . .
Kym @ Homeschool Coffee Break — The Benefit Package
Just a few minutes in one of my “teachers lounge” breaks to enjoy a cup of coffee, read my Bible, have a virtual chat with a friend through a message board or blog… these are surprisingly valuable rewards and encouragement in my day.
Marcy @ Ben and Me — Dear Homeschool Dad
So here goes, a short list — a few simple things — you can do to let your wife know how much you appreciate all that she does for your family.
Thanks for joining us for this week’s Blog Cruise. I hope you will all be inspired to stop and take care of yourselves now and then! Next week, we will share our last Blog Cruise for 2012, as the Schoolhouse Review Crew will soon be on hiatus until January. Next week we will share a special Blog Cruise, I Am Thankful.
