As We Get Closer to Summer Even Though it Looks Like Winter

54 days! 

That's it! We have 54 more days before our 8th year of homeschooling can (legally) end. The end of another year of learning is "on the horizon" and it's been an interesting year.

So, I've been spending some time looking at where we are and where we need to be, and planning our next 54 days to meet these goals and start summer vacation with a bang.

  1. Awesome :o) Its great to set goals! :D

  2. Woohoo!! Great goals but I love your ability to say "oh well". We had to do summer school last year and I just can't get burnt out again. I am also looking forward to summer and a much needed break.

    1. I know lots of families school year round - and we do a lot of things in the summer that would be considered "school" - but we need those summer months to unwind, relax...and be LESS busy.

  3. Love your organized homeschool shelves and goals :) We are looking forward to summer here too - although we will probably be doing some math catch-up along with our fun, summer learning.
