The textbooks are rapidly closing and making their way to a dusty shelf, to be ignored until a younger sibling needs them. Children are hovering around me. Following me. Looking forlorn. Wanting more food.
And dare I say, proclaiming they are “bored.” When I threaten them that I will give them new schoolwork, they nearly jump as high as the roof begging me to punish them. Surly this isn’t normal behavior? I’ll take it, though.
Having this school year come to an end has been difficult for us. It truly has been a sweet time of fellowship, learning, and snuggling.
I’m sad to say goodbye to my fourth grader, my second grader, and my kindergartener. (However, I will admit I am a little anxious for a certain three year old to follow directions better with the assistance of a longer attention span come fall.)
There have been many discussions about curriculum for next year . . . and learning for this summer. In fact, I think some ideas have been added to my list when I wasn’t around. And the curriculum that will be making the cut? (. . . The one that ALWAYS makes the cut.)
In fact, we will be traveling up to see these wonderful people on our family vacation. It has become a bit of a tradition.
