February Advice: Get Out of Town

Hating February is a long tradition.  As you may already know, the Romans disliked February so much, they shorted it on days.  That’s how enshrined the February blahs are.  It’s the month that everything seems wrong.  Someone told me it’s the month you’re most likely to question whether you should really be homeschooling.  I can believe it.

That’s why we try to take a vacation in February.  Even if it’s a short one, like this year’s two day trip to a ski resort.  It doesn’t always happen, but we’ve had several big trips in February in the past.  I know not everyone can afford to flee town in February, but if you can, I really recommend it.
