How I Overcame Homeschool Burnout Mode

My Confession

In the five years I have homeschooling I can honestly say I Love to homeschool but that has not always been the case. There have been days when I have felt run-down by it all. Homeschool can be rewarding and challenging as well great deal of time leaving me feeling overwhelmed, emotionally, physically; spiritually sometimes it is too much leaving me at that burnout mode. I have done all I can to encourage my children and guide them through their homeschooling needs I feel as they don’t understand what I am trying to teach them. I was baffled and seeking answers I felt like I was on this roller-coaster ride that was never going to end .There was so many times I felt like saying I don’t want to homeschool no more and then I remember why I was homeschooling in the first place and the negative thoughts diminished. As I said before I love homeschooling and there is no greater joy then being a mom I search-for answers from homeschooling moms and some of the moms knew exactly how I felt and they too had experienced the same feelings and I asked what help them and they told me this the key to defeating burnout mode for them was 
Get more sleep
Take more field trips/outdoors
Be Flexible
Don’t be afraid to change your curriculum if you need to
Don’t add new things to your daily schedule
Family game time
Join a Homeschool support group
Make time for family time
And don’t compete with other families
I listened to the homeschool moms advice and I can say I am in a much more relax state now  and I will be grateful  always to them

Cute Albino Animals

Albino Animals
Today me and the kids went online to my Pinterest  and I was trying to find a new animal unit and my 10 year old noticed a picture of an Albino goat which led us to looking up Albino Animals and we found a vast amount of animals pictures more than I could have imagine. This coming week we will be studying about albino animals and I wanted to share with you some of the animals we found.

Albino Animals are not like the others in the wild they are seen peculiar by their own species and noticed by predators they may end up with health problems and vision problems. Their rate to survival in the wild is virtually zero and as to finding a mate can be slim to none for most species. Here is a link for more details
