There’s something about a fresh start. And I think that’s one of the most appealing things that propel many into getting right to new goals. But it’s almost a tricky thing to balance. Often times we want a fresh start because we haven’t liked how some things are going. Namely, how busy we homeschooling families can be. So, while we want to slow down and start afresh, we all too often end up diving right into a busy pattern and maintain old habits that need to go. It doesn’t have to be this way though. So, I have a challenge for you to help you ease into the new year so that this cycle doesn’t happen unintentionally.

Review Major Set Backs
Review Lessons Learned
Keep a Positive Outlook
