Today was more video heavy, yesterday we played more board games I think it all balances out in the end. He’s learning a lot and enjoying being in charge of his education. I have a simple chart that I made to keep track of it all and as long as we’re hitting language and math daily and everything else at least a few days per week I’m alright with letting him take the lead.

So that’s what our days look like at the moment. They’ll change a bit next week when B and I go back to nannying 30hrs/wk, but most of our school stuff is portable and we’ll be home early in the afternoon so it shouldn’t change too much. Do you school through the Summer? What do your days look like right now?
