About Rest for the Weary

I hope you will find this little spot a place of rest and refreshment for your soul. My intention is to build up women in the trenches of homeschooling. This includes veterans who are burned out and former homeschooling moms who have decided for one reason or another to put some or all of their children in school. Thanks for stopping by. Take a deep breath of refreshment for your weary soul.

Advent

This post contains affiliate links.  See full disclosure in the footer.
The Advent season is upon us, and it is a great time to add something different and meaningful into your homeschool or afterschool if you children are in school.  These are memories that your children will carry with them into adulthood.  Try some and find ones that resonate with you. After 7 children and 25 years, we have discovered quite a few Advent activities to help us along through the season.  Some we continued, like celebrating the traditional feast of St. Nicholas, and others, like the Jesse tree, we did when most everyone was young.  The interest in the decorations waned, but the memories are tucked safely in the cozy spot of their minds.
