One of the advantages to homeschooling is you can make your own schedule.

You don’t have to go on vacation in the middle of the summer. You can go when it’s less crowded and the rates are lower.

If the summer is too hot to be outside, you can have school then and allow more time off in the spring and fall when the weather is more pleasant.

You can take shorter breaks throughout the year and not have the major adjustment that comes with school starting back, or have any problems with boredom over breaks.

Those are all great reasons to try homeschooling in the summer.

But we don’t.


Because my husband is a school teacher.

  1. That's a very good reason! But, the cool thing is that you guys can work on the exact same schedule that he does, so you're always off on the same days! 🙂

  2. I totally understand that. I was a ps teacher for 5 1/2 years and I can't seem to get out of that mode. I would love to school year round but I have this hang up in the back of my mind that keeps me on the Sept-June mindset. Hopefully we both can find the happy medium. Blessings.

  3. Because I contract with the local school system, my kids want the same days “off” that I have. That is great that your family gets to all be on the same schedule.

  4. That’s funny! At least you guys get the summer off together!

  5. Y couldn’t u do school with daddy for summer? say do all ur science over that quarter and he’s in charge of it. keep up in the mornings maybe w/math and grammar (and handwriting) too and u’d have a very easy time picking back up full time in the fall when he goes back AND u’d have more time off during the yr cuz u’d done all ur science for the yr already! 🙂
