Our hearts were tired yesterday.
It’s been one of those weeks. Nothing tragic, just recurring struggles magnified in the lives of some of the littles. Struggles that bring stress to us all. Mama, Daddy, babies.
Sometimes we just need a down day for our weary souls to rest and recover.
I try not to make this blog too homeschool-centric, but I have to say—this is what I love about homeschooling. In an ordinary setting, the littles would be rushed off to school like any other day, but instead…
Our exhausted one sleeps in. We move slowly through the day. Our regular seat work is suspended and we fill our time with documentaries, The Magic School Bus, play doh, drawing, quiet learning games, library books. I wear the one-year-old who has been a bit short on snuggle time during the past couple tumultuous days. He falls asleep against me and the Ergo carries his sweet, sleeping, heavy little body on my chest as I go about my work. It forces me to slow down. Solo piano station on Pandora. Encouraging reading. Nourishing food. Rest.
And it’s a beautiful, healing day.
