So, summer break began for the public school kids this week, the kids thought they were done...not so true. I explained to them that when they finish their books, we'll say second & fifth grade is over. I worry that may take until November. They have found a little motivation with those words though. "When I finish this book, I'm done, right mom?" Matthew then proceeded to do an extra lesson as did Emma. As we are reading through Joann Calderwood's book on self-teaching for next year, it does give me some hope that it will work.
Meanwhile, Lily & Humphrey think summer is pretty awesome.
