Kids in public schools around here will be going back to school on Thursday. I never understood that - going back to school for 2 days and then being off for the weekend.
We are off until Monday. Yeah, only 2 less days than the public school kids, but it seems like more because of the weekend.
I love the flexibility of homeschooling. It makes for a much more relaxed time.
I have also decided that we are not taking off 2 months for the summer. I am going to have some time off, but then we are going to take a shorter break so that the kids don't forget all that they have learned. :D
I like being able to control our schedule. It makes things work for us.
