We will soon wrap up our lessons for this school year. I am SO excited!!!! We don't have any big plans this summer except to hang out and make a small (field) trip before starting back next August. I am considering makeing them practice handwriting and some math (if we can make it fun - like Although I really am ready for this LONG break and don't won't to bother.
I'll most likely have books for next year pulled out by the end of June and begin to read and make lesson plans (I get excited about the next year too).
Just wondering what everyone else had planned - or not planned? And I know I'm not the only one as excited as the kids to be on summer break!

We typically do a lot more "fun stuff" during the summer, but it's still educational. We fit in more field trips (museums, zoos, science centers, etc.) and we also do more experiments.

This summer will be a little different because we are catching my daughter up on some things as we just pulled her out over holidays. I now have all three of them home and it's interesting, lol. But with her being in high school and the credit thing, we want to make sure we keep on pace, so this summer she'll need to do some make-up work.

I am so excited for summer break! We finished up on Friday and we take Memorial Day off every year, so today is our first official day of summer break! Yay! My 10 year old son was up at 6:30 am for our morning schoolday ritual of watching Flintstones but has since gone back to sleep. Today is a big book sale and I'm excited to browse things for next year. Here's a run down on our big plans this summer - my son will continue to use our math curriculum's website for a quick multiplication fact drill almost daily -- he worked too hard on those time tables to forget them this summer! I've printed off some fun file folder games for the little ones (ages 7 and 3) from my Teacher Book Bag purchases. Nothing they have to do, but good for rainy days. My oldest (14) will be doing a tiny bit of math to get caught up. We want to continue our nature studies as a family (www. and I've found a fun patriotic symbols "study" from that I plan to casually use with the kids. Wow am I really taking any time off????
