Weekly Recap 5/24-5/28

Though our school year is officially over, we had a fun week and I wanted to share it.  It's been great for all of us to just take a break. 

I am even enforcing a break for myself.  No lesson planning or homeschool scheming or plotting until after the middle of June.  I have to admit I've caught myself a few times going for my well worn copy of The Well Trained Mind.  Habits can be hard to overcome.  I have enjoyed reading for pleasure alone and spending time just playing or doing nothing.  This is what summer vacation use to feel like.  Who knew homeschooling would help me recall that feeling of freedom.

  1. Love the pictures! I admire your restraint in resisting to plan!

  2. This is our first year of pretty intense homeschooling. We have been a bit more laid back prior to this. We always homeschooled year round. But, this year June and July is our break. We are going to enjoy the sun, go camping, and spend lots of time at the beach. I'm hiding my copy of TWTM and not taking it out.

  3. Enjoy your break, and I hope you return all refreshed and raring to go!

  4. I've been feeling a little burned lately. I already nixed my plan for continuing school through the summer on a light schedule. However, maybe I should also be focusing more on a break for myself. Thanks for the reminder.
