How is your homeschooling affected by holiday busy-ness? As far as finding time to shop goes, I end up buying a lot of presents on the internet to save time. We don't have to travel, since most of our family lives in the same city as us. I guess if we did we would end up doing school work in the car on the way. We are affected by the break from school our public-schooled neighbor kids get. It's hard to keep my kids inside when their friends are home; it just makes me feel bad. I don't like the idea of a super long holiday break though. How do you find time for shopping and celebrating? Do you take a long break like many public schools?
