Less Than Two Weeks Left This School Year

18 May

Well, I did it. I have almost finished and survived my first full year of homeschooling. Yay! Teachers and students take much needed breaks, and it’s probably for the better. Ours isn’t the typically long summer vacation, but a vacation nonetheless. I. Can’t. Wait.

Actually, most of my “break” will be spent arranging plans for NEXT year’s curriculum, but I know it’s not something I will need done within the next day or week or so, so can work on it more at my own pace, rather than because there’s a pressing need to do so. If I’d rather take a nap, or drag us to the beach, or go on a nature walk, or work on a quilt I’ve been planning since last November, than I can do so. I can sleep in rather than be up that extra hour or two early because I need to get 2 million things done each day (although, who am I kidding, I’ll still have to be up fairly early to prepare breakfast.) ¬†And then there’s also library activities, VBS, and possibly a theater class for the summer, park days, and, of course, the beach.

Wait, my break has just vaporized before my very eyes! Is it possible to feel tired just THINKING about all the activities planned for the BREAK? Good grief. And people worry that homeschoolers don’t get out enough. We are a walking (and driving) contradiction to THAT stereotype! So much for vacation!
