Yes, we do have a schedule around here for our summer time days. And yes, we do school year round. We like the random breaks throughout the school year and the time off to enjoy nice weather or take an impromptu trip. Plus, there is nothing worse than starting the new school year and realizing that the children have literally lost their minds and can no longer do simple math or read words that contain more than 3 letters. So, even though we don’t school every day, we do sneak in a few things and some extra studies that we weren’t able to get to during our regular year.
I have two schedules. One is for a regular day where we are at home and are planning to do some school work. We’ll probably have two of these days per week. Some weeks I’m sure we’ll be out and doing things so we won’t need this schedule.
For the other 3 days, we have an alternate schedule which is called the “Swim Schedule.” This is for days that we’re out of the house all morning swimming or on a field trip or at the park. On these days we’ll do a few things in the afternoon since it’s too hot to be outside.
You can see our summer lineup here of all the fun plans that we have scheduled. This summer you’ll find us studying about horses, reading wonderful literature, practicing our Spanish, and doing science experiments as we learn about God’s creation. Ohhh, and don’t forget all the art projects that I have planned! Summer time is full of art and projects!
