I’ve met a wide variety of homeschoolers from really relaxed to super structured. Though I definitely fall on the “structured” side of the spectrum, I am not nearly as structured as some. One friend told me she fills up her car every Thursday. “Why would I wait until the car is nearly empty of gas?” She anticipated the need and planned ahead each week.
I was astonished. I realized I could do the same. Not just with fuel for my car, but fuel for my soul. I know exactly what fatigues me. I can plan ahead and cushion my time with extra margin. Homeschooling is more pleasant when I am taking good care of myself.
