Summer school?

We have officially ended our school year, and I decided that we would do no school until August 10th. I want the kids to feel that they have a real summer vacation. They were so excited, and now they are BORED! Already, a mere week since we started our break. So….we are doing many fun activities during the day, activities that a month ago I might have labeled as school. However for the sake of our summer vacation, this is not school, it is fun!

Anyway it is amazing how great of an attitude the kids have when I don’t use the word school.They are enjoying everything we are doing, and no one is complaining! Today my youngest did his Headsprout, and the twins read independently. We then completed a drawing lesson from Mark Kistler’s website ( They really loved making Ninja Eggs. We then went swimming for a few hours, came home and listened to a book on tape, and took a nice evening walk.  Overall I am really enjoying our summer break!
