It seems like we started our school year just yesterday and Fall Break is already here. Actually, we did start our school year last week. While we wouldn’t normally take a break just after starting our school year, we try to take our breaks to match my husband’s vacation time. This week we have already enjoyed taking a trip up near North Bay in Ontario. Thanksgiving is this coming weekend too so we will enjoy time with family and a trip to the fair. Since we just started our school year I am fitting in a little school here and there. Today we managed about 2-2.5 hours of school. Tomorrow is picture day and we will probably try and squeeze in some reading during errands.
We should get back to mostly full-speed next week. We plan to move in the next 6 weeks and I hope to keep at least 2 hours of school going each day during this time of transition. Last year I took off 6 weeks for a move and we ended our school year rather late. This year I hope to avoid that by keeping school going at least part-time. We count hours rather than days so 2 hours here and 30 minutes there can add up to a full school day. Our typical school day is about 5-6 hours long.
Happy Thanksgiving to all the Canadians out there!
