Welcome back to the Homeschool Refresh series!
If you missed Part 1, Celebrate Successes, you can check that out here: Homeschool Refresh Week 1
Part 2, Acknowledging Difficulties: Homeschool Refresh Week 2
Now that we’re all caught up, on to week 3!
This week, we’ll be taking our successes and difficulties and compiling them into one master list.
We’re going to bring it ALL together with a fun exercise that I call More of This/Less of That. Basically, you match up what you want & what you don’t want in list form, so that you have succinct statements that spell out your vision of what you’d like your homeschool to be.
I filled out my Week 3 chart and it was quite eye opening! I started off with my difficulties and tried to turn them around. You can check out my full list in the images below.
If you signed up for the Homeschool Refresh already, you got Week 3 sent straight to your email inbox. If you haven’t signed up yet, no worries! You can do that by clicking any image or link on this page, like this one: Send me my free worksheets!
How has this process been working for you so far?
Now that we’re just past the halfway point, let’s check in about how this process is making changes in your homeschool. I’m seeing benefits! I feel like processing what’s working & not working, and what is most bugging me, has already shifted the energy around some my pet peeves. I’m paying more attention to what’s going well, but also getting creative about how I am handling those more difficult moments.
Take a break & treat yourself!
You’ve been putting in the hard work to make your homeschool the BEST it can be. Don’t forget to take care of yourself too! Whether you enjoy long hot baths (me) or delicious cups of tea (also me), reward yourself with something FUN.
Thanks for joining me on this journey!
