Well, That's Just Your Opinion

We have been doing school since the beginning of August, which is about 2.5 weeks earlier than the local school districts. I made this decision for a couple of reasons.

  • I wanted plenty of time for fun stuff this year and didn't want to feel like we were falling behind by taking a day off.
  • It is as hot as blazes outside (exactly how hot is "blazes"?). I'd rather have time off on a pretty fall/winter/spring day.

This has already paid off. We got less than a full day done last Thursday. Friday was great, but it is our "enrichment" day (music & art appreciation, history projects, science expirements, etc.). On Monday we met some friends at the park for lunch, then the kids had their first orchestra rehearsal, so very little school was done. And, of course, the field trip yesterday.

Ruthie does not seem to see things quite the way I do, though. I was talking to Griff on Monday evening, telling him how crazy things had been. Ruthie piped in with, "Yeah, our homeschool is falling apart."

Today we are hitting the books hard. We don't want our homeschool to fall apart! :)

Don't worry... it won't fall apart far. You can always pick up the schedule and re-ink it. ;)

Although, I do NOT want a repeat of LAST year for myself and my little homeschool. That move nearly sent my homeschooling for a permanent nose-dive! Yet... another move is looming out there on the distant horizon, and I'm sure it will be quite a surprise when the rain starts!
