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.

I could hardly believe it when I realized that this is the last full week of September.  It's time to be wrapping up this series!  I have a few more encouragements for you, which I hope to share the rest of this week.

Today's encouragement is to:

Take a Walk


My soul is at rest when I am outside amongst nature.  Now, that isn't to say that I always choose to go outside.  Often I get so caught up doing things in the house that I forget how important it is to get outside.  Once I go, though, I always feel at peace.  Do you need a gentle nudge to get outside today?  I do not know what it is like where you are, but in my area, it is going to be beautiful this week!  If it is anything like that near you, take advantage of it and go take a walk.

  • An evening stroll by yourself to nourish your soul
 
  • A nature walk with your kids, to observe the leaves and flowers 
 
  • A walk down your street with your family, to encourage conversation without distraction
 
  • A mini trip to a nature area to go hiking
 
  • A strolling date with your husband, to have undivided time together to nourish your relationship.

Maybe you are starting to feel the drag from school being in session for a while now.  Think how rejuvenating a late morning or early afternoon stroll with your kids would be.  Wouldn't that just perk everyone up for the rest of the day?  Remember, scholé isn't about lounging around all day, or making every learning opportunity a restful experience.  It is simply about taking some time each day to nourish your soul.

Give yourself the opportunity to contemplate something good, true, and beautiful today!   A walk is a perfect way to do that.



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!

    1. Great! I've been sick this week, so I don't have the energy for a walk, but I did make sure to sit outside yesterday and today for a bit and it sure does make a difference! Thanks for reading along!
