We’re doing a series of summer sessions, growing a new homeschool community, and it’s been fun to see the kids interact in groups again. Wow, is it mayhem! Just general excitement to see their friends again each week and explore new topics.
A Kansas/Missouri visit in the full of summer makes for tired, sweaty people. We haven’t done this for two years, however, and so we entered into our travels with enthusiasm. After all, it was Grandma Carole’s 75th birthday!
I don’t know if it’s simply reactive, a post-Covid leaving of the space we were forced to inhabit for a year, but we’ve been far busier than expected this particular year.
We were only home for three days this past week. Sigh. Poor planning, really. But there wasn’t anything I’d skip. Happy summer!
It’s summah! Park, swim, eat, play, pet, visit, catch – go go go!
A week away, breathing and swimming in the mountain air, with our a 500-square-foot rustic cabin to hide in from the hail equals some pretty zen kids and parents.
And the “official” school year is over for us, and with it the end of my weekly tracking posts. I do this each week throughout the year, just for myself. These posts will see you next fall! Adios!
One week down…. Off we go, marching into the weekend at half pace, after a full week of go-go-go. I, for one, am tired. Full week, good week. May there be another.
Deep breath in… We’re hitting the end of our “school year,” or at least the part where I report it officially. We’re clearly ready to be outside nonstop, away from books and the table. Deep breath out… Two more weeks.
