Each year as the summer begins, I like to make a master list of fun things and projects that I hope to accomplish over the short summer break. Two years ago I wrote this article for The Homeschool Classroom. It details how I make my summer list (with the kids' input) and how I implement the list. You can click here to read the post.
My list this year includes lots of canning and deep cleaning of my house and garage. Plus next year's school planning, getting Julie all ready to move to college, and doing a few things for Olivia's new (much larger) dorm room too. Plus a vacation to the Smoky Mountains, Vacation Bible School, Rustic Youth Camp, and maybe even some sewing…..Oh, and I am probably going to teach a high school level English class (very small) for some homeschoolers this fall, so I have lots to plan and prepare for that.
Have fun planning and enjoying your summer!
