In the Good Ol' Summertime

**For those of you joining me from the A to Z challenge, welcome! I'm homeschooling through the alphabet.**

The end of the school year will be here very soon. In fact, we'll be ending in the middle of May. Then it will be my favorite time of the year.

S is for Summer

Last year was the first summer we didn't do any school at all. We all needed a complete break. Usually, though, I have the small people do a little bit of math and reading each day, giving half days of credit. It's amazing how quickly those half days add up, which gives us a little more flexibility throughout the year. I'm not sure yet if I'm going to have the small people do some school this summer or not.

Last summer I came up with a list of Summer Fun Activities. We had a great time going through these during our time off from school. One thing I learned is that I should go ahead and have the craft supplies on hand. It's a real fun killer to choose an activity and then realize that we can't do it until I've gone to the store.

What are some of your favorite summertime activities?
