We are winding down our homeschool for the year. This week and then next week, then we are on summer vacation. Oh, how I long for summer vacation.
I recently read that summer vacation is a time to put academics aside and let children become tall and tan! I love that idea. It surely is a reality in our home.
Some last minute thoughts as I am ending my day...
- So thrilled to have ordered some new clothes for Luca. My favorite silk/wool blend. A shirt and some snappy overalls. I can just picture him stomping around in them!
- My children want to make iced tea tomorrow and add the fresh spearmint that a friend just gave to us. I am looking forward to this too.
- Set some 'summertime goals' for us this year. On the list we have riding a horse, beach going, berry picking and some great bits of literature (Robin Hood for the boys!). Oh, and I really intend to finish reading The Wind in the Willows aloud to my children... it's only been two years now that I've been trying!
- Looking ahead to my birthday celebration next week and the opening day of my favorite farmers market in my area!
