The holiday season is upon us!! Because we home school all year long, we take an extended break at Christmas, and so we are finished for the year, woohoo!
I hope your journey so far with your 6th grader has been great, and that you are both growing and adapting to the things that are changing in your lives. Our lives have had a great many changes this year: a major move, a new state, a new way of life, new friends, new church, improvement in spelling, new home school associates, and the list goes on. I’m ready to take a deep breath, enjoy the season, and not think about school until next year, and I invite you to join me.
I’m venturing a guess, but I suspect that the child who entered sixth grade in the fall is noticeably different than the child you are looking at today.
Your sixth grader is going to still need your guidance, and love, even if they pretend that they don’t want anything to do with you.
For those of you who will be beginning the home school adventure when it is time to go back to school after the first of the year, know that it can be done, it will probably be ok, and remember to let your child decompress a little as you start up the new adventure.
Happy Holidays, and a most wonderful New Year!
