Today i thought i would share what my plans are, concerning homeschool, after baby number 6 is born.
Baby number 6 is going to be the 3rd baby born since we have become a homeschooling family. Baby number 4 was born at the end of June and we didn’t start back to homeschooling until August, so i had a bit of a break there. Baby number 5 was born at the beginning of August and we started back to homeschooling at the end of August/beginning of September. So i have homeschooled with a newborn before.
With baby number 6 though, i want a bigger break than just 2 weeks. We have been a year-round homeschooling family for a few years now, however this year we haven’t been doing 6 weeks on 1 week off. The reason for that is, i wanted to get as much school done with before baby number 6 is born. That way once he is born, we can take 4 weeks off.
That’s my plan, once baby number 6 is born, we will take at least 4 weeks off. Then once we start back to homeschooling, we will enter into it lightly. We probably won’t go back to a full schedule for at least another 2 weeks after that.
I want to enjoy the time with my new baby, plus take the time to get adjusted to being a family of 8.
