It is fine to take a day off if everyone needs a break and is not in the mood for "school", but I think you need to be careful not to do that too often.

I think the best homeschoolers are the ones who create achievable goals for their children and then work towards them rather than give their child a 2nd grade workbook because they are (or would be in public school) in 2nd grade.
We once took 5 months off because I realized we'd been homeschooling for 15 months straight! We don't tend to take vacations and since it's our lifestyle we tend to forget to take breaks.

I've only been homeschooling for 5 years.
