Busier as far as activities outside of school work. We do much more stuff during the summer. I hate winter and cold so we tend to stay in more during the winter, not that we're less busy inside we just don't do as many activities outside. My girls still have to do reading and math throughout the summer but we do a lot more activities, projects, camping, parties, day trips...
Just a different kind of busy it seems
Just as busy! At least it feels like it. We're spending our summer homeschooling because school happened in fits and starts this year. But with different camps and things, we still have a lot going on.
We have been busier now than during the school year, more energy to burn & time to have fun!
This week has been crazy busy. DD had theater camp all week, along with a beach party and girls scout event. I'm hoping things quiet down a bit now.
Since we're still early on in this game (K), schoolwork doesn't change much. I'm still offering just the same as I was before. Outside of schoolwork it's a wash. Awana is out for the summer and soccer doesn't start up til fall, so that time is freed up. But with nicer weather we go out more. Trips to the zoo, the dinosaur park, swimming lessons, park playdates, train rides, birthday parties (seriously almost every child in our extended family was born in June or July), the pool is open, hiking, camping ....
Okay I take it back, summer is busier!
I think it's the same amount of busy, but a different kind of busy. I do a lot of extra curricular and activities with the kids through the school year, adding field trips and whatever else. In the summer we're camping, have season passes to the local water park we go to weekly, do bowling and skating weekly. So it almost rounds up to about the same amount of running around and doing things, just a different style depending on what time of the year it is.
