|Little water boy!|
Of course there is nothing I can do about how quickly this time seeps away. I want to enjoy every minute, and make the most of this beautiful season before it is gone. It is an exciting time for the kids, who get to visit with people they don't have much opportunity to see through the year, or go on day trips to fun places that are just too much to squeeze into a normal school week. They get to escape the hot house with Mom and relax on a beach, or spend days at a time playing - just playing - in the yard with their friends.

I made the decision to homeschool not for myself, but because I saw a need in my son that I worried could not be met in the traditional school system. I had a brand-new baby (and three other young children) when we took it on full-time in January of 2011. I was scared, but courageous - I was doing it for my boy.

Hurray for summer! Here's hoping I have the energy to keep up with everything this season throws our way.
