As a home-school mom, summer break can be an exhausting experience. After all, the only difference between the school year and summer vacation is now the kids are bored and are constantly asking you for something to do. I often call it the ‘Summer Boredom Blues’. They’ve been so busy all year with structured activities that they have trouble entertaining themselves. I don’t know about your kids but mine love to be busy. Not in the ‘chore’ aspect of busy, but in the ‘mind’ aspect of busy. Put a challenge in front of them and we have balance in our home.
About the Author
- Stacey Upchurch
My name is Stacey Upchurch and I am a wife and mother of four, beautiful girls. Our life is full of home-school shenanigans, raising organic plants and animals, health and fitness coaching, and sharing the love of Christ. I am currently enrolled in Trinity School of Natural Health and will be receiving my (ND) Doctor of Naturopathy Degree. Upon completion, I will pursue certification with the American Naturopathy Medical Accreditation Board (ANMCB). The good ol’ saying of…. you can take the girl out of the farm but you can’t take the farm out of the girl…is very accurate. I love the benefits my family receives from raising organic plants and animals. The circle of life on a farm is extremely rewarding. While living as chemically free as possible is our family’s goal, we do splurge every now and then. An important factor to a balanced life is reducing stress. As a result, we have found harmony in the structure we have set for ourselves. I am not a medical doctor or a veterinarian. Furthermore, I post only the lessons I have learned personally to help better someone else’s experience. Everyone needs to find a balance that works for them. In conclusion, I pray that I may inspire you to gain more control of your life and over-all health.
