8 Winter Break Tasks for the Homeschool Mom

Amidst the holiday fun, here are some homeschool tasks to think about doing over winter break. Doing them will make spring semester start better!

You may remember that I did a post last June entitled 7 Summer Break Tasks for the Homeschool MomWell, today I have a list of tasks for the homeschool mom to do over winter break.  Um, yes, really.

Listen, I realize that Christmas break is the time to relax and enjoy family.  I do get that.  But you and I both know that there are things that we could do during that down time that would make starting up again in January that much easier.  So I’ve made a list.  Whether I get to them all or not is another story, lol — but a list will help me make them a priority.  I bet it will help you, too. 🙂

But here’s the deal: this is A GUEST POST.  You have to go somewhere else to read it, which can be a drag. But it’s worth it, I promise! It’s a very doable list.

Christmas Break TasksSo to read my list of winter break tasks that will help make spring semester start smoother (ha! see what I did there? 🙂 ), please click on over to the iHomeschool Network blog. 🙂 Here is the link: Christmas Break Tasks for the Homeschool Mom. (Or click on the image at right.)

I know right now it may seem overwhelming to even consider winter break homeschool tasks when you are also thinking about baking, decorating, shopping, etc. — if you haven’t read my posts about holiday stress yet, you might want to take a look at them, lol — but if you like, you can always just pin this post and come back to it later. Just hover over the big picture and a “pinit” button should show up, or use the share buttons at the top or bottom of the post.

And thanks for being loyal readers!!  These guest post opportunities would not be possible without your faithfulness to read, comment on, and share my blog!  HUGS!!!
