Our Summer Second Wind

We homeschool year round. It’s a must because we take our time throughout the year. No Monday through Friday 8 AM- 3 PM here. It’s more like, Monday 11 AM- 2 PM, Tuesday 9 AM- 9:30 AM, Friday 10 AM- 3 PM…you get the picture, we don’t do well with schedules!

So in order to keep forward progress (and yes, we are well capable of making great progress with a “schedule” like that) we work on through the public school breaks. Like Spring Break, Christmas Break, Hurricane Days (hey, we don’t get snow days here in Florida) and of course, Summer.

Usually around Christmas time I am hitting a bit of mid year melt-down, but by summer, I have what I like to call my Summer Second Wind!

This summer also coincides with 4 kids advancing a grade level. I have one moving from 6th to 7th, two going from 8th to 9th and one from 9th to 10th. We also have a 3rd/4th/5th grader who will remain in those grade(s) and two that will be starting kindergarten. We are using this advancement to try out a new curriculum, one we’ve dabbled with before, but this time we are going at it with full steam.
