6/21/22 Tree of Life Mama’s Podcast of the Week: How to Plan Your Summer as a Homeschool Mom with Sarah Mackenzie of the Read Aloud Revival Podcast, #208

Ahh summer!

This is my favorite time of year! I’ve already had a several-days retreat with girlfriends, gone swimming, and planted most of my garden. I’m looking forward to so much more this summer! I don’t have any more vacation plans this summer so I’ll be enjoying summer offerings close to home.

I really enjoyed this recent podcast episode from Sarah Mackenzie, which you can listen to over here.

She gives all homeschool moms a “compass” in the form of a set of questions to guide your summer season. Why would you want a compass for summer? Or any season? So you can look back on your summer, or any season, with satisfaction. You may miss doing things you wanted to, but with a compass you will do the things that matter most.

Here is what matters most to me this summer:

-continuing with my #abookandagameaday. I’ve got a whole slew of new games to play! Like the ones pictured above and below. I’m also reading aloud my picture books from over here.

-forestbathing with friends of mine and friends of my children

-tending to my garden with my children

-playing games with my adult children who will be visiting soon

-playing games and reading books with my two grandsons who will be visiting soon

-hiking with friends and family

-going thrifting with my adult daughter

I have a feeling that’s too long of a list. What is my “most important thing”? I’m pondering that. I’d love to hear what your most important thing is. Please comment below if you care to share.
