Fun Friday: The Last Day of School
Today was our official last day of school. Really all that means is now we can take time off and I don't feel guilty about it. We will still be doing things throughout the summer but it won't be so formal. Because Jay's schedule is so crazy we sometimes "do school" in the evenings or on the weekends and take a weekday to do the fun stuff. It all evens out. (By the way, have you read this article? This: "School requires everything in the house to revolve around school, which makes it very difficult to be a parent with a big career and a parent who is taking care of school needs. Once you're homeschooling, the family can accommodate lots of different interests." is so true. If our kids were in regular school Jay would have to switch jobs or I would probably go nuts.)
We took our traditional last day of school pictures. (Here's how they looked at the beginning of the year. And now I realize Alice's signs don't match. Oh, well.)
We went to see Epic and got our pool passes. We didn't actually start school until about 3:30.
Boris seemed to be low on motivation this morning.
He eventually perked up and I found him working on this puzzle.
