I’m a mom of six children. I’ve been homeschooling eighteen years, and now that I have three preschoolers, I have another eighteen years of homeschooling to go!

Three of my children are adults. Cory is 24 years old. He’s a working man and a caring husband and father. Leslie is 21 and graduated from the University of Arkansas, Little Rock, last year. She’s a stellar student who's living in Europe as a missionary right out of college. Nathan is 20 years old and after one semester of college he was asked to work as a writing coach in the university’s writing center.

Soon it will be summer. Although there are a few hard-core homeschool families who go year-round with their formal studies, and others, who in an effort to “finish” the curriculum for the year, end up working until late July, many families take the summer “off.” And while there may still be a few that need their children working on the farm to feed the family, for many summer is a season of less structure, more leisure (sometimes too much?), and an opportunity to do special things that require time not easy to find during the school year.
