It's Official....School's Out for Summer!!

Yes, SCHOOLS OUT for summer!!!!!!!!!!!!  Yay.....I don't know who's more excited, me or the kids!  Yesterday was our last day of school for the 2009-2010 year.  Yes we went a bit later than most schools.  We took awhile off to help some dear friends move out of state, took an early summer vacation and all because we can!  Its hard to believe we just finished our 6th year of homeschooling.  I wouldn't change a thing...I mean I love having my kids at home.  Sure I would do a better job teaching them more and improve upon myself, but I wouldn't change having my kids at home with me for anything.  They are my life and I love them!

Now that schools out we will be spending our days sleeping in, watching lots of "Little House" and going to the pool.  I do love the summer break, but it doesn't take long to yearn for the schedules again.  What do you do during your summer months off?  How do you pass the time?  I would love some ideas on fun things to do during the summer that are easy on the budget.  Thanks for sharing!

Hmm - we've had lots of Little House here too. Found out that Allison Arngrim is going to be in our neck of the woods on her book tour and contemplating taking the girls for autographs. But I don't know that it's an appropriate book for kids, based on the title. Hope your summer is a good one.

Go see some movies at the cinema during the free summer movie specials. Take the kids to that sprinkler / fountain area we always talked about. And a hike at Lake Norman State park - let the kids get in the water and get nice and muddy :-) Love you!
