Our homeschool schedule usually begins in early August so that we can be done in early May. We like it that when spring fever hits, we don’t have to be stuck behind math books, but can instead be working outside in the garden or playing ball in the yard.
So, do you know what this week is? It’s the beginning of the end of our school year! Each of the boys just have a few small assignments to finish up, and then they can officially stop learning for a few months. HA! Assignments from books may be finished, but I love that the learning never stops! In fact, we’ve got book lists and project lists already in the works.
Among all the other great things I could tell you about our school year, we’ve had a wonderful year of studying American History. WOW have we learned a lot! (By we, I totally mean me because I am much more knowledgeable about how our country has become what it is.) (I do think that the boys learned a thing or two as well.)
But now, we’re excited to have a more flexible schedule, to be able spend more time outside, to have more time to play games and to be goofy.
Not that we really need more time to be goofy. Really. We do that pretty well on a regular basis, even while we’re thinking of the best adverbs to fit a sentence. (You don’t want me to share examples.)
And so, let the lazy days of summer, which are anything but lazy, begin. Once again, I thank God for another wonderful year of learning with our boys.
(Our oldest will be a 9th grader next year. I’m choking on my muffin.)
