|Hannah was working on extra math after school while Sarah read behind her. They are using my desk.|
We take time off if someone is visiting us. If I'm feeling worn out or need to do a lot of work around the house or yard we'll take time off to work. Sometimes we'll take a half day on Friday for a few weeks in a row to catch up on other stuff.
|Elijah was also reading and then he did the next math lesson.|
We take time off for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. If half or more of my students are ill we will take the day off.
|We are using this stepper which was given to us recently as a reward. They can earn steps by doing their work well. Yes, my children are strange!|
In September I use a calender to mark off all the time I think we will take off so I can be sure we will have enough school days throughout the year. This shows me how many half days, sick days, and goofing off days we have available. I make sure we are spending at least 20 days more(usually many more) than the typical school year at our studies.
Oh, I also take at least a month off after having a baby. I plan for the baby's birth month by taking less time off the rest of the year. I also lighten our school load for a few months so I can learn to juggle the new baby, school, and household work. As the baby grows our schoolwork grows until we are back to "normal".
