    Question Homeschool and summer break?

    Hello everyone!!
    I was wondering about summer break while homeschooling. Do you go by the schools in your area to determine when your child is on break? Confused...

    Never, lol. We don't go by the school's calendar for anything. Not because we are super haters or something, lol, just because it doesn't really work for us. We vacation in April and September, so we can avoid summer prices and tons of extra people. We take off from Thanksgiving until just after the New Year, because we stay so busy during that time. We don't have a fall break or a spring break, not really. Depending on how the school year went for us, we sometimes are done with our year around the end of July. We have occasionally gone a week or two into August, but that's rare.

    I would say do what works out best for your family. If you want to space out your year, and you need to run into summer to complete your required attendance days/hours, so be it. Flexibility is one of the biggest benefits of homeschooling.

    Having said that...if your kids have a lot of friends in the public school system, you may want to do what you can to make sure they have time to play with their friends.

    Good luck, and keep us posted with what you decide!

    As a homeschooling parent, it's up to you. We school Tues-Fri all year long. We do take many breaks. All of December, some weeks in spring. Everyone's birthday and a few weeks in summer.
