We're year-round homeschoolers, but there hasn't been much homeschooling lately, at least not purposeful. I just can't seem to get in the groove. I have a real lack of energy (I really need to examine and change my diet), and I don't think the kids are in a real mood to focus on certain things either.
Instead, we've been working around the house- gardening, building, baking. I'd really like to take this summer to visit some educational place around our state, and maybe outside of our state.
As a homeschooling family, I'm not very fond of summer for several reasons. First of all, it's ridiculously hot and humid where I live. Secondly, places are so crowded in the summer. We're use to having museums, zoos, malls, and other venues "to ourselves", but during the summer, places are crawling with other families, and it's just not as enjoyable, even on weekdays.. and don't even think about the weekends!
So I'd like to get out and do stuff with the kids, but I really don't like fighting the crowds!
