to get the kids to do school work in the summer? Always about mid July we come to a halt. I planned it that way this year but we didn't quite finish up. I thought it would be no big deal to continue on another two weeks and wipe out the books. I was wrong. Nobody wants to hit the books. The kids want to swim all day and lounge around in the heat. Its this way every year. I need to go with it.
The key to success is to find the flow of your days and work with it instead of fighting it. So I have decided that we will take from today through August off just like I originally planned last fall. What is 10 or 12 pages in a workbook? Its not going to mean they can't move on to the next level. I need to quit sweating it!
Here's to summer!
