I guess since our summer was not a "real" summer (meaning, we had very little down time) I don't really feel like I got a break. So after only one month of this school year, I'm ready for summer!!!! Scary. Not that I don't love homeschooling; it's just that I'm kind worn out already. We did add some tennis and swimming and that is taking up 2 hours every day, Monday through Thursday. But I'm finding that I just want to work outside, sew, craft, and read!!! I guess I could and call it school if I was an unschooler. Oh well.
It's probably the oncoming fall season that is making me feel this way too. I love mild weather and whenever it starts to cool off a bit I start getting Fall Fever (same things happens in the spring....well, that's Spring Fever, but you get my drift). I just want to DO stuff all the time.
In the summer, I just want to lay around like a slug and wait for the heat and humidity to be done. In the winter, I just want to curl up in a blanket or bake all the time. But spring and fall are my DOing seasons.
I actually toyed with the idea of taking spring and fall off and doing school during the winter and summer. In a perfect world (meaning, a world that I controlled completely...does that sound like world domination?) I would do it. But my kids' friends have summer off and that would be hard.
But seriously, I want to play all spring and fall. And be a hermit all summer and winter. WHO'S WITH ME???
