I decided that this year I was going to do something new. We finished 9 weeks of school and are taking a whole week off. Unfortunately, it’s already Wednesday and I’m just getting around to making a post about it. I wish I could say that I’ve spend too much time relaxing. Yesterday morning we had 5 dentist appointments. Plus a not so happy baby to entertain the entire time.

I made a list this morning of everything I hope to get accomplished in these next 5 days. It’s scary. I think I need to take 2 weeks off. Or maybe 3!

My list is a mixture of school planning, catching up on some reviews, and some fall home tasks. I’ve got some fun things like decorating. I’m trying to figure out how to do our thankful tree with my mobile little guy so into everything! Some of my other chores aren’t so fun, like washing windows. I think I’ll enlist the help of my children for that.

Do you take a fall break? Any hints for accomplishing my mile-long list?

  1. I was just commenting on how i do more on days off then I do when we are in school. Oh well. You still have a few days to kick back. I hope you get some time to relax. I love the Thankful Tree. We did a similar project last Christmas. Each ornament was something we were grateful for.
    Five kids at the dentist? Wow.. You are awesome.

  2. No, we do not take a fall break. We do take a week off at Thanksgiving though. I don’t know that I would want to clean windows either on a break. Actually, I don’t think I clean windows. 😉 Hope the rest of your week goes well. 🙂

  3. This is our second year Sabbath Schooling, where we go 6 weeks on then 1 week off. It saves my sanity and keeps me from getting burned out and depressed. Enjoy your week off!

  4. I did that for the first time last week also. I could of used another 2 weeks to accomplish everything. It was nice to some time to get it together again for the next 9 weeks!

  5. We are almost finished with our 2 week break. We planned 1 but our book order didn’t make it time for us to start up. It has been a wonderful break. The kids have worked on so many projects and I’ve been able to get some sewing done. I had planned 2 weeks at Christmas then 1 week in the spring but I think that one week in the spring will move to 2 the time has just been that valuable to catching up, getting things ready for the next unit and working on those projects we never get around too when school is in session. Wish I had some magical advice for getting everything done. 🙂

  6. My favorite way of dealing with a list is to decide what actually doesn’t need doing. It works.

    I no longer take 5 kids to the dentist…or the doctor…or shopping…. Life changes, and enjoy these times while they last!

    Have a blessed weekend!
