Welcome to Down Home, San Luis Obispo Classical Academy’s blog! We are a classical school offering several options to make our education work for families with infants through high schoolers. Our signature hybrid program, which is part-time classroom and part-time home instruction, provides an engaging education for preschool through middle school (with full time options available). We also have a university model high school. This blog is meant to support and encourage on the home front because, in so many ways, the heart of what happens at SLO Classical Academy happens down home.

Semper discentes—always learning together.

Summer 2013: Pause – Connect


We often go to great lengths to help our kids connect with their buddies, but it can be trickier for us moms to carve out time to spend with our own close friends. So today’s Pause tip is to Connect. Be purposeful in planning some alone time with other adults in your life who love and support you, and have fun together! If you have young children, enlist the help of a spouse or sitter. 

Meet up with a friend or two and to go a movie. Splurge and buy popcorn! Or enjoy a leisurely lunch together at a real sit-down restaurant. If you’re in the mood to frolic, try bowling or miniature golf together, or some other activity that makes you feel like a kid again. Get ice cream afterwards. Sometimes a simple walk together is a perfect way to share in each other’s lives and feel refreshed. 


What do you like to do with a good friend to rest and recharge? Share a comment below and let’s encourage each other to connect!
