Summer Vacation is Over…..

4 Aug

One of the reasons I love homeschooling is that it offers us limitless flexibility in our schedule.  I noticed a few weeks ago that my kids were starting to get restless-which means that they stop finding productive or fun things to do and instead come up with new and creative ways to annoy one another (anyone relate, lol?).  It was time.  Starting now also gives us an opportunity to get a head start and take some time off in the Fall and do some fun field trips with less of a crowd.

I am not one to prepare and plan ahead of time (you can read about that here), I am forever in a last minute hustle, I am getting better, but still. 

So after a week of preparations here we are at yet another first day of school!

Hard at work! I love their eagerness and enthusiasm to learn!

Who says you need to sit at a desk to learn?  The couch is perfect place to snuggle and read.

So, how do they REALLY feel about the first day of school?  Giddy with goofiness ;)  It's going to be a great year!

Three hours and then we were free to enjoy the beautiful summer day. We rounded off the day with breakfast for dinner and a trip through the sprinklers. A wonderful day indeed!

When does school start for you?  Any tips or tricks in making your day run smoother? I would love to hear from home and public school families….because both are awesome!  

Thanks for sharing in our day!

~Be Blessed and be a Blessing~

    School here starts “After Round-Up” (aka. The 3rd full week in September) as does every thing else in my rodeo town. As a teacher for the last eleven years, it’s an engrained schedule for me to now be prepping and planning and fitting the last summer trips. But I’m not going back this year, and so I’m getting used to hanging out with my two little ones and I’m resisting the school supply aisles (so far, anyway!)

      What a big, but I bet, exciting change for you! Enjoy your time with your sweet little ones, it is definitely a blessing! Resisting the school supply aisles takes more self control than I am capable of, lol! So major props to you, my friend! 🙂
      Thank you for taking the time to visit and share with me…it made my day! Have a blessed day!

    So much fun! I love that these moments are documented for them to always have. They will always appreciate it & so will you. I have shared on my social media pages. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

      Thank you, my friend! I am so sentimental, I just want to capture everything 🙂
