Planning Retreat: Words of Wisdom

When you are considering curriculum, look at the rhythms of daily life in your house. Plan, as much as possible, a logical sequence of events. I am not talking about an airtight schedule. Airtight schedules… are going to set you up for failure. Don’t be a slave to your schedule or your clock. Instead, work with the natural rhythm of life in your household to set up comfortable, logical, manageable routines… The rhythms and routines of daily life provide comfort and security to the entire family. They remove the need for constant decision making over things that should be habits and are the oil that lubricates a well-run homeschooling family.
