Happy February! How is your new year going, mamas? Are you hitting your goals or are you starting to burn out? February can be hard for many homeschoolers. SADD is setting in, the days are short but so long at the same time. You might just need some things to do in February to get you going. It’s a short month and there’s so many fun things to do!

- For mamas, take some time this month to soak in the tub. I’ve been loving Epsom salt baths lately!
- Write a love letter to yourself, mamas. Stop focusing on the negatives about yourself and write out all the good things about you! Tuck it away for days when you’re feeling blue.
- Read one book that makes you feel good every day. I’m loving a Gracious Space: Winter Edition.
- Take long walks–either alone or with your kids. Bundle up, get outside. Put it on your to do list.
- Visit a nursery with your kids. Some are getting prepped for spring, so there might not be too much to choose from. But take an hour to browse and bring home a plant or two.
- It’s Johnny Cash’s birthday this month! Listen to some of his music with your kids. If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can stream many of his albums for free! Copy lyrics into your copywork books.
