Thank you for stopping by. We are into our second half of our first quarter and I want to talk to you about downtime. Over the past couple of years, I discovered that taking a much needed break was important to me for a number of reasons. Whether it be to get caught up on housework, to take care of those doctor's appointments, or to even get in touch with friends and family, I wanted those things to happen. However, I knew that taking time off from school could be a bad habit to get into. I was afraid that taking time off would ruin the good run of school work we had been accomplishing. I was fearful that the kids would get "lazy" in their learning and simply not do the work. Truth be told, I was also afraid that I would get "lazy" in my teaching. Taking time off was a "want" basis at that time. If was it wasn't a necessity, we didn't do it. And that was my first mistake.
Welcome! My name is LaVonda. I am the wife of Rodney, the mom of 5 remarkable kids (well, 2 are adults now), an avid homeschooler, blogger, and sociologist. I am blessed with the ability to spend my time sharing our homeschool and life experiences with you. It is my hope to provide you with motivation, ideas, and some candid stress-relief through my blog - Mom's Scribe! Grab a cup of coffee, sit on down, and make yourself at home!
