“Back to School” Sanity Savers
There is always an element of “crazy” when families make the shift from summer break to school. Saying good-bye to lazy days, sleeping in, and a slower pace of life is always hard. Even as a homeschool family, we struggle. There are new routines to adjust to and more activities to add back into our schedules. Real life sets in.
With the switch from vacation mode, there is often a lot of extra stress and frustration. Kids don’t want to start back to “work.” Let’s admit it, sometimes we don’t want summer to end either. Everything just seems to feel busier…and harder.
Whether your school year already started or you are getting ready to make the transition back to school, I wanted to share some practical tips with you on how to try to keep your sanity intact during this season of change.
