Our homeschool group is putting on a Winter Tea next Saturday night. Usually it's held during the week, but the facilities weren't available during the week this year. The Tea is usually held in January and February to combat that dreaded "Winter Burn-Out" which many homeschooling mothers catch this time of the year. You know, when it seems like "I can't go on"..."is that the pool open down there?"..."...you mean summer isn't 6 months long?!" These thoughts need remedying.
We bring our own teacup and an appetizer to share. We fill our cups, dunk our bags and listen to the wisdom of the priest who was invited to speak to us. To lift our spirits. To encourage us. To re-focus our attention. Or slap us and yell, "SNAP OUT OF IT!". Well, not really. But that could be effective!
We all look forward to this relaxing night. I think we may even swap some homeschooling/parenting books at the suggestion of one of the mothers.
I am really looking forward to this Winter Tea. What do you all do for that Winter Burn-out?
