CoH 22

The 22nd Carnival of Homeschooling is up at The Common Room. Several pieces, as you might expect, on the subject of keeping the little ones busy during summer. There's no break around here, though: we work like dogs during the summer, getting as much work done as possible while the temperatures are soaring daily into the humid 90's and above, with lap swimming in the early morning and recreational swimming in the evening. We take our long break when the weather gets cooler, from around Thanksgiving through the new year.

Anyone else treat the heat and suspension of outside classes as an opportunity to slave over a cool desk?

Seeing that I'm married to Lawn Guy, summer has never been our opportunity to go on vacation and such since the growing season is in full swing at that time. Homeschooling fits us very well in the vacation scheduling respect. We take our "summer" vacation in October (to Port A) when the temps are lower, the people are MUCH fewer and the rates are a lot cheaper...and it is almost always hot enough to swim and get all the benefits of going to the beach at any other time. There is also less sunburn and you don't have the "joy" of encountering drunken revelers spewing beer on you and setting little children's eyes and ears aflame with their gratuitous flesh displays and NC17 linguistic abilities. You only get winter Texan retirees who think your kids are cute and marvel at their sand castle masterpieces.
