Thanks for coming back another day of our month of Scholé Everyday! If you missed the first post which explains what's going on, take a minute to read it. Remember, these are just going to be short posts with an idea to encourage you in the way of restful learning.
Just this post and one more tomorrow, then the series will be over! Looking back over the month, have you noticed any changes? Has your home or school day been positively effected in any way? For some reason, this month has been incredibly crazy for me, but each night I go to bed looking forward to our school time the next morning. It is reassuring to know that each day will bring with it some sort of restful learning. I look forward to continuing to implement these ideas all year long!
Today's encouragement is to:
Get Together with a Friend
Do you remember way back at the beginning of the month when I challenged you to ask a friend to join you on this journey? I encouraged you to set a date to get together later in the month. Did you do that? Have you gotten together yet? If not, why don't you take the opportunity to do it this weekend?
I got together with my friend earlier in the month. She is a newer friend of mine (we met in the past 2 years), and we are usually surrounded with children when we get to chat, so it was really nice to be able to sit for a few hours and talk deeply.
We talked about homeschooling, and encouraged each other with ideas of how to better run our days. We talked about Classical Conversations and our thoughts about this new year. We shared about our children and encouraged one another in our role of being mothers. We talked about the Body of Christ and how we can use our gifts in the church. We shared ideas and ideals, visions and desires, and helped each other refine our thoughts on them all.
We sat in a coffee shop until they closed, and then talked in the parking lot for a while longer. It was good for my soul.
I should have taken a picture to share here, but I'm not really into selfies ;)
If you got together with a friend, I'd love to hear about it! If you haven't, get to it this weekend and then come back and share!
If you are purposing to incorporate scholé into your home this year, I'd love to hear from you! Share with me what you are doing or how these ideas have impacted your homeschool and I can compile your stories in to a post. I'd love to even have some guest bloggers if you'd like to write a whole post about how you are using scholé in your homeschool this year! Contact me and let me know how you are doing!
