Our school year is divided into three terms with breaks in-between. So, technically, we don't take summer off. BUT, we do get a nice, little break for a couple of weeks, and we will take another break in late August / early September before Lucy starts first grade (or, in Charlotte Mason terms, form 1b). And also, since it's kindergarten, we keep it very light anyway - still lots of great books and time outdoors.
I am still processing everything I have learned so far this year. Homeschooling is extremely challenging in some ways, but it is also deeply rewarding. I am so thankful for the time this year has allowed me to have with my children, watching them grow and learn. They really are such extraordinary people!
