Summer is nearly over! Its almost time to get back into our homeschool routine. We always take a full summer break, because up here in the Northeast, it is the best time to be outdoors! After a long winter cooped up in the house, we all crave a nice long summer vacation. So we usually take all of July and August off of school. By the time September rolls around, we’re all (mostly) ready to get back to our routine. Personally, I love this time of year – like Anne Shirley, I excitedly look forward to a whole new year with no mistakes in it yet. We collect our materials, plan our schedules and get everything ready for our new school year.
This school year, I’m going to have a high school sophomore/junior (we’re contemplating a flex year for her since she has a late birthday and started school on the early side), two 8th graders (one of whom is starting to earn some high school credits this year), and a very reluctant 1st grader. That should make for an interesting year!
This week, I’ll be doing a quick series of posts about getting ready for the new school year. I’ll link all the posts here at the end of the week for easy access.
