Are you feeling down or overwhelmed?
I often get depressed immediately following a great experience. I've been told that's normal. If you've been at the top of the world, even the mile high city pales in comparison. It's also easy, when thinking about the future, to become overwhelmed by everything we have to do. The events to come in the rest of our lives quickly swamp the few hours we have today.
Many families are finishing up their homeschooling for the year and looking toward the Fall. This can be exhilarating and exhausting. Summer is here, but that doesn't mean things can't be a little blue even with clear skies and perfect weather. I've found a little encouragement and some well-placed reminders to be very helpful when I'm down or stressed.
That's one reason why I love the latest update to Sonlight's website. You can now find encouraging photos and quotes in the sidebar on many pages of the site.
Do you have a photo and story that is a great reminder of the joy of homeschooling? Have you recently been encouraged by something that happened in your homeschool? Please, take a moment and share it on Sonlight's Photo Contest page. Your picture and story may appear in next year's Catalog and website as an encouragement to hundreds of families beginning and continuing their homeschooling journey.
