Being homeschoolers, we spend more time together than most families probably do.

This is good, I think, for us at this time in our lives. But I have to admit I was a little worried about summer break.

I mean, the only difference is no real schoolwork. What if we all just got sick of each other?

What if we had forgotten how to just be us, without the routine of school to build our day around?

What if I had gotten so used to being Teacher Mom that I couldn’t relax and just be Summer Mom?

What if summer break didn’t seem like a break anyway because we’re all just here, like we always are?

(No one every said worry was rational.)

You want to know a secret?

I think summer is going to be awesome.

  1. isn’t it crazy that we homeschooling mom’s can dread summer too. i worry every year that they will be bored and we will grow sick of each other…and the truth is we will (we do during the school year too), but as you have captured in your photos, we’d rather be bored and sick of each other TOGETHER (FOR GOOD) then being off doing our own solo things.
