End of school year

Well it is that time of year again. Time to write up my final paperwork for the school year, our 4th quarter reports. It is a time to reflect on the past year, what we covered and what we didn't. What we enjoyed and what just didn't work for us.

I find it so hard to believe that another school year has already come to an end. To say it passed quickly would be an understatement. I am still a little in shock that it is officially summer vacation at our home, and maybe even a little bit in denial.

Don't get me wrong. I love summer vacation, probably as much as my children do. But I don't feel prepared for it. I don't want it to fly by and think, "Wow what did we actually do this summer? Where did all those weeks go?"

So I have done a little brainstorming, but want to do much more and come up with a more solid plan or at the least, an outline of what I would like to get out of this summer.

We have started a list of ideas for field trips. A list of fun things to do on days we stay home. Even a list of things I would like to accomplish, such as working on my daughter's domestic skills and getting in lots of summer reading. I hope that this will help us have lots of fun, but to also get lots of things accomplished. That at the end of the summer, we can look back and feel good about it.

Happy Summer!


  1. Congrats on another year down!!

    It's always nice having a break. We spend the bulk of our break at the water park or the community pool. We try to avoid museums until PS is back in session. Less crowds. LOL

    Enjoy your break!
