Introducing the 2015 Rhythm Challenges

Welcome to the Lavender’s Blue Homeschool Rhythm Challenge! One of the biggest challenges homeschoolers face is creating a peaceful and steady rhythm to their days and weeks.

I like to think of rhythm as a predictable flow, not a rigid schedule. But even though our goal is an easy flow, it takes hard work and dedication to get there.  It takes exercising your will consistently over time to build new habits.

Over time if you put the effort in, you’ll find that you reap the rewards of rhythm: Peaceful family life, steady days, and confidence as the leader in your home.

Each Rhythm Challenge post will go into one area of rhythm in depth and give you a framework for making progress. You’ll find an index of all the posts below as they go live, so feel free to bookmark or Pin this page for reference!

Here are some tips to keep in mind as we work on rhythm this year:

1. If you’re new to rhythm you’ll find lots of background and food for thought on this resource page.

2. Slow and steady progress usually works much better than a mad dash to perfect rhythm by the end of the week.

3. Every rhythm challenge comes with a downloadable and printable worksheet (available in color or black & white). You’ll get the most out of the challenge if you use these! Pretty colored pens not required - but then again, they might just be the secret sauce.

4.  I would love to hear how these go for you!  Leave me a comment or send an email.  :)
