Winding Down

It's always hard to stay motivated to keep going with school around this time of year, especially when we've finished what we planned to do with history and vocabulary two weeks ago, and my 4th grader is in the 6th grade grammar book and halfway through the 5th grade math book. You start thinking, "Yeah, smart enough!"

What makes it more difficult is that we leave next Tuesday for a 3 1/2 week trip to the States to attend a wedding and search for housing in Orlando. I've learned to keep my expectations for getting through anything while traveling low. Thank God for libraries.

The week after we get back I am coaching a week-long leadership development time so the kids are on their own. That takes us almost to June. So once again that elusive "36 week school year" will not happen. And that's OK.
