Summer school for oldest son started on June 9th. Since then, our day has consisted of driving son to school at 7, coming home to some quiet morning study, morning chores, riding our bikes, playing games, reading, going back to get son at 12:30, coming home to eat lunch, exercising with son, doing a chore, reading some more, watch Adam 12 with daughter, then making dinner! We have not varied from that routine much for the last few weeks.
I have to admit that I was dreading summer school, but it has turned out to be a great experience for him. He has proven to himself that he is a good student. He learned to ask for help. He learned how to navigate a tricky computer interface. He learned how to persevere when things were boring, but you have to be diligent and wade through what "they" want you to know. He is looking forward to starting the fall semester on July 29th.
Starting school so early doesn't leave us a whole lot of time for summer, unfortunately. We have family to visit, a birthday to celebrate, a camping trip up north, all to cram into a few weeks. I will make sure to make the most of these precious days!!!
