We're almost "done" with school for the year. 3 weeks! Then on to fun, like Nana Camp, swimming, reading, adventuring...
Really our summer "break" won't be a time of no-school. The kids know that. We just won't be following a schedule, and I'll be aiming for interest-led activities and reading.
I'm going to take the summer break time to prep for the next year. Having been through one year of schooling with Sonlight, I have an idea of what I want to do to add to next year's work, and how I might go about preparing for that. Big plans, I tell you!
Break for us won't be all that long, really - I'm aiming to start up our lessons again in mid-August, so we're looking at a 6-8 week break instead of the 10-12 weeks that the rest of the kids in our neighborhood will get. I'm okay with that, though. I think there are benefits to year-round schooling, but that's a whole other post. The break in the middle will probably be hardest for ME to come back from, since it means I'll have to get back to so me semblance of daily schedule.
But it's all fun. How can it not be with my sweet 3 kids?
