If your Homeschooling has been going off the rails on a crazy train since the holidays hit, you’re not alone. My whole life I have felt that the holidays come too quickly on the heels of a new school year. I felt this way when I was a student, I felt this way when I was a teacher, and I feel this way more than ever as a Homeschool parent.
It seems like as soon as you get into a good rhythm each new school year . . . chugging along at a happy pace on the lovely transcurricular railway . . . there’s hardly time to take in the scenery before you have to pull hard back on your brakes—sparks flying, steam blowing—to stop for a mummy crossing at the dreaded ghost town they call Halloween. No sooner has your train hissed to a halt when all your passengers spot a creepy confectioner’s shop on the corner and suddenly you are delayed by a deadly candy crisis.
It takes some time and some considerable effort, but you finally manage to get all your sugar-high zombie passengers back on board and somewhat seated. You say a grateful goodbye to Halloween town (such a monstrous place), but your train barely gets back up to speed again before a giant turkey scrambles over the tracks and BAM! Gobble-gobble-golly-gee! you are overtaken by a frenzy of feathers and feasting. And worst of all, you hardly have time to shove down a third slice of pumpkin pie when . . . ZOOM! you’re whisked off on an express train heading in a completely different direction—full steam—to the North Pole.
