How is your summer going? Would love to hear how you are filling up the “lazy days of Summer”? Are you playing catch up on the books? Participating in fun activities? Enjoying a family vacation?
Over the 16 years, we homeschooled I would say that we did all of these things at one time or another. Some years we hastily tried “catch up”; other years we enjoyed our local library reading programs and “Science Treasure Hunts”.
While it makes sense to use the summer to catch up academically, I would like to suggest that sometimes we (and our children!) need to have a break from the textbooks! Whether you spend the summer doing more free explorations and learning or even invest energy in a unit study, find time over the next few months to rest, recharge and refocus. Your children will thank you!
