Being a homeschooler and homemaker both have a lot of responsibilities. I need to make sure there is a healthy balance in our home of all the aspects where I am in charge. School is important to our family so we want to make sure that we spend a good amount of time teaching what we want our children to know. We also need to make sure we take care of our home, family life, and meals. Sometimes trying to get the balance for the day or week is easy and other times it is hard. There are times when things seem to get out of balance and we are running like a mouse in a wheel and getting only one thing done. Sometimes we need to reboot and take a day just to focus on school, taking care of our home or family or making meals. Reboot days can still often fall into the category of learning for our children as we work together to help to bring balance back to our lives. They are learning ways how to take care of of their own families when they grow up.
