Do enjoy having your kids home during the summer?

Do you enjoy having your kids home for the summer? Or do you start the countdown to back to school within the first couple weeks they are home?

How far into the summer before they start to drive you crazy?

I do enjoy it. We have a full calendar already! We are leaving for FL on the 31st and won't be back until the 12th.. my oldest is staying until the 19th. The kids are in a wedding on the 21st and we ( the kids and myself) are headed back down to FL until July 2nd. We'll be home until the 12th for VBS and then back to FL the 13th-25th. We will shop for school, have a dental appt for my oldest, open house, YDD's birthday and then school starts on the 5th of August. I love it because we pretty much spend all summer at my mom and IL's homes in FL.

Mist of the time I love it, I really miss seeing them, sometimes I don't see them except an hour or so a day, between school and work, I'm sure by mid-july I might change my mind lol.

 It's a love/hate relationship : )

They tend to be better behaved when we're camping. Usually about mid-end of July, I start the "How much longer until school starts?"

Well, ds is home with me regardless and dd was until October of this school year so I miss her. We have a jam packed Summer coming up. It's going to move really fast and she'll be back in school before I know it. Ds will be schooling at home due to medical issues.

I love it until about a month before school is going to start.

This summer is going to be enjoyed as much as possible. My youngest is going in to kindergarten and I'm not ready!

Mine are better behaved when camping too.

 It must be the change of scenery : )

Must be! I think it's less stressful for me too because there's not nearly as much stuff to worry about while camping!

I do. I kind of wish she wasn't going to the YMCA this year.
