Do You Enjoy Christmas Break?

Being that we homeschool, I am constantly asked if the kids have Christmas vacation. My answer is absolutely!!

I try not to generalize, but I know many public school parents that can't wait for their kids to go back to school. They even count down the days.

Not me.

I take advantage of every day of Christmas break as an opportunity to get things done. All those things that get pushed aside because I am helping the kids with their school work all day long.

The kids are loving it because they can play and watch movies all day. There are legos, cars and wenkinzs everywhere, but I don't care. I'm getting more work done this week than I have all month!

I think I'll even be able to get a head start on our taxes too. My studio is nearly clean, paperwork has been neatly filed and I'm getting together a nice pile of new inventory that'll go up on Etsy next week. It's so exciting!!

So do you enjoy your kids break from school?


  1. It's been pretty fun. There are the occasional sisterly clashes, but for the most part we are having fun (as I type this I am settling a little disagreement between the two!)


  2. My son is enrolled in a online school that he does at home. He is really enjoying Christmas break. He starts back on Monday. Thank you for linking up in the ring in 2011 blog hop, I am your newest follower.

  3. Oh yes!! My children go to public school. I know some parents that say they can't wait for their children to go back to school after break. But I am not one of them. I look forward to the breaks just as much as my children. I love the time we have together to just have fun, relax and catch up (or just breathe). I really miss them when they are in school. School days are hectic and full. I relish these days we can just be.

  4. i'm homeschooling my youngest so it's great when my eldest is home to help and get caught up on some learning with activities and games from christmas but i love whenever my kids are home....i just say that i wanna get rid of em' but not really!:) happy new year
