Here it is the Christmas season. Tell us how long you will be taking a break from the standard subjects. I think we will just slow down, but we aren't going to go cold turkey and take a long break. I may take a week off after Christmas, but that is it. I do need a break.

What are some of your plans during the Christmas break?

We actually just took a week after Thanksgiving (visiting in-laws) and this past week. This past week my daughter was doing Nutcracker every night and wasn't getting home until 11:00. I decided to let her sleep in every day and not even try to do school. So, we started up again this week. I haven't decided yet what we're going to do next week.

Godspeed all & have a great Christmas!

Our standard practice has been to take about a month off of the regular schedule beginning the week before Christmas and ending by the end of January. We still did school during this time but work on short unit studies. Beginning last year, my kids have been connected to co-op classes which follow a traditional school year more or less, eliminating that long winter break. They get almost two weeks off but we do miss the long break. Sigh, just another reminder that they're growing up. No more midday breaks to make snow angels...
