Well, we “finished” school this past week. I say “finish” because we school year round and never stop for longer than a week or two. However, last year I realized that not having an official start/stop date created some problems. So June 10th was Kate’s last day of 1st grade. We will take a 2-week break and then resume some light studies through the end of June and July, starting back up with our new curriculum and a rising second grader and kindergartener in August. (I will share later this week a few lessons I learned this year.)
The reasons I have decided to wait until August are twofold:
(1) I need to do more research and planning for the coming year especially in light of having two children in school and
(2) I really like to hit those back-to-school sales at the stores. Starting school in June you miss out on all the deals!
This week the girls will be attending the 3rd annual Mayes Camp — a 2-day camp for my parents’ grandchildren ages 4 & up. This year Cora gets to attend, and she is super excited. We will pick Kate and Cora up on Saturday at the cook-out.
Other than camp, the girls are still doing gymnastics throughout the summer. It’s a great way to release all that energy when the days are unbearably hot.
Here’s what is on our weekly meal plan. We’re going no-cook this week and using our grill and the slow cooker.
