Yesterday the last school book closed on the school year 2011-2012 for a big (little) Academy.
What to do with today?
When we started this homeschooling venture 5 years ago, I knew that it was all or nothing. My kids shudder when they hear “all or nothing” because we dive in, head first, and looking back comes with threats of pillars and salt.
Liberty’s finished third grade. Eden’s done with second. Next year’s books line the shelf, and I have three weeks before we jump into those books. Starting the second week in May, we’ll start a new schedule. We’ll work five days out of every two weeks in the summer, then jump into three weeks on, one off come fall. I’m thrilled with the possibilities of those one week breaks and the field trips we’ll take during those weeks.
Today, I’m taking all the full workbooks up to the shed. Grandma’s on the way for a visit. It’s a great day.
