Today is the last day of school until the Monday after Thanksgiving.
We made it through October and we are finally at mid winter breaks! We take a week now and two weeks at Christmas!
The hardest part about home schooling is staying motivated when it seems breaks will never come. October seems to be my hardest month. I just want to be done but it's still so early in the year. Christmas marks the half way point and brings wonderful breaks full of fun and family.
The boys are doing remarkable and the long days of school that we had at the beginning are shrinking since they know the material and are eager to get done. What once took a good 3 1/2 hours or more is now complete in a mere hour and a half to two max. I'm really proud of my intelligent little self starters. It really does get better with time. I never thought I would enjoy home schooling and by George look at us now.
