I am so glad we had a nice summer break. We home school and are going to start school next week. I have a lot to do this week to get ready to start. But in many ways I am glad to be starting back up. We have had a nice summer break with lots of fun and enjoyable times. I like schedule though. I think we need to get back into the routine and schedule of school. Things just seem to go better when we have more structure.

I am grateful for summer. Last May I was so ready for a break from school. Well, actually I was probably ready in February, but by May I was really ready. :) I need summer break. I know many people home school year round and take a few breaks here and there. I don’t think I could do that. I need those few summer months to regroup my thoughts, organize my house, catch up on things that have been neglected over the school year, and work on any big projects that need done. This summer I did not get all I had to do done, but most of it. Overall it was a good break and I think I am ready to start a new school year again.

  1. When people ask me if we school during the summer too, it’s all I can do to keep from screaming, “NOOOO WAY!” This mama needs her summer break. But, we started school yesterday, and we are so excited to be back in the swing of things!
