I asked them if they wanted to end the school year early...(and a ? about spring break)
I was calculating our # of days done this year and realized if we worked really hard (finish some books, put in about an hour extra work per day) we could finish our 180 days at the end of April and start summer early. So I asked my kids (5, 7, and 10) if they want to do that, or if they'd rather go at our usual leisurely pace and take until the end of May. They all said take til May! :) Not the answer I expected. But I guess it makes sense. They were concerned about not having anything to do if their schooled friends aren't out of school yet for summer, so there's that. And their summer camps won't start until June. I guess I was the one ready for a nice long break. :)
So - we may take a week off for 'spring break' so I can catch up on some household projects and revamp the last few weeks of our lesson plans. Does anyone else take spring break? I usually don't, but this winter has felt so very long and cold, I am really feeling burned out!
