In my life this week…
All this week I have felt like I was not accomplishing anything. And then today I suddenly realized:
- Although my house is not pristine, it is comfortably neat and clean.
- There is only one load of laundry waiting to be folded.
- School is completed for the day and prepared for tomorrow.
- So far this week, our family has eaten fifteen meals, all of them at home. And after all that, there is only one sink full of dishes to be washed at the moment.
Maybe I have accomplished enough. 😉
In our homeschool this week…
Everyone is working hard to get things finished up for the year. We have around fifteen days to go before we begin summer break.
With the end of the year in sight, I am ready to start working on the kids’ portfolios. They are not due until the end of June, but in the meantime they must be evaluated. Anyone else in Pennsylvania working on end-of-year portfolios?
My favorite thing this week was…
I have so enjoyed reading time with my children. We are reading The Hiding Place together in the evenings. What a thought-provoking book!
Questions/thoughts I have…
I love the idea of year-round schooling, but I really don’t know how I would manage without the summers “off.” I need to get caught up on so many things, and I also need a chance to clear my mind before jumping into new lessons.
Maybe some of you year-round homeschoolers can chime in here–how do you manage without a summer break?
