Although I have learned to be more outgoing, in reality, I am an introvert. There is nothing I like more than to slip away by myself somewhere quiet.
Q is for Quiet
Homeschooling 5 small people all day means there is usually at least 1 person talking ALL. DAY. LONG. There are times when I seek quiet. I can always tell when I need to find a quiet place because I can feel myself getting anxious and starting to snap at the small people. In the past we've had a "quiet time" as part of the daily schedule. The little ones would nap. Those too old to nap would read or do some other quiet activity.
For some unknown reason, this has been dropped from my schedule for the past 2 years. I think I'm going to need to add it back soon. I know the twins would like to learn to do needlepoint/cross stitch/etc. This would be a great activity for them during a quiet time.
Do you need quiet time?
