    So, we have hit July. WOW
    Love this time of year. Warm weather, sunshine, we get to be outside, garden is flourishing and then the heat starts.

    Our first year homeschooling, we started in October for oldest DS and in January of the following year for youngest DS. Prior to that we had been public schoolers so it was ingrained in us to school Sept-June. We wrapped up the year in June after crushing it. I decided when we finished, that we would do a longer year and take more breaks.

    Now, I didn't want to take away our Summer all-together because we had family vacation, 2 weeks the boys stayed with the grandparents and lots of outdoor stuff we ONLY get to do in Summer.
    So, we started August 1 and worked until mid-June. We did 9 weeks on and 1-2 weeks off, depending on where it fell and how we wanted to work it.

    That gave us 6 weeks off in the Summer to do fun stuff and we also do a Mon-Thurs only schedule so even if we had things we WANTED to do in Summer and school had started....we could.
    I guess you could say we kind of fit both profiles, we did take a small Summer break and we kind of school through the Summer. Mainly because even our vacation, we did something cool. We explored the tidepools, took pictures of critters we weren't sure of to look up later, attended a wild food class where we learned how to forage, and a museum was always in the plan.

    How about you?
