I always try to prepare the kids as the last week or two approaches. I know they will miss their friends. Amazingly, as we've talked about what is to come, they expressed how excited they are to come and work with me at home. Hopefully that will be the case again this year! It's such a time of renewal and refreshment for all of us. And I certainly can't complain that when all is said and done, we're on a consistent schedule of rising early and getting ready.
Here's to a lovely summer!
And just in case you're wondering how our schedule pans out for the year...
We generally start in September after Labor Day and wind down in April. This allows both May and August to be lax with summer school in the middle in June and July. We usually take a fairly long break during Christmas as well.
