Have you noticed how much work you to have to do to go on vacation? For me, it often feels so overwhelming, I'd rather stay home. I'm a homebody. My wife rejects my proclivity, insisting that vacations are a good and important thing. Enjoyable even!
My impression is that summer "vacation" is busier for families than the school year. So much happens! Is that true for your family? Busy or not, there comes a point where the weariness of play and the tedium of disarray takes it's toll. When boredom strikes, what is one to do?
- Read some great books for fun!
- Learn how to program a video game or build a website.
- Try out some hands-on science experiments your kids can do for fun and get them excited about the world around them.
- And you could always re-read one of the great books you've enjoyed together from one of your previous years of homeschooling...
Me? I'm going to try to shoot a short film for fun and spend a ton of time with my wife. So I'm not going to be around these parts for a couple weeks. If you comment on this post, I won't see it until the end of this month (which means typos will remain intact until I return). There will still be good stuff to read from the other bloggers here a couple days each week. But I'm not going to be blogging and neither will Autoblot™.
Since there will be less content here for a bit, you may run out of things to read on on the internet (especially since Facebook offers little more than the same four linkbait articles each month <sigh>). Should you find yourself pining for excellent content, fear not! I've got you covered with the amazing Other Posts of Note I've read recently. Browse these gems to convince you to click the link and skim through these great blog posts covering such diverse topics as:
- Talking to your kids about uncomfortable topics
- Performing miracles
- Sibling rivalry
- The failure of online schools
- Insights into that Hobby Lobby thing
- And much, much more!
Seriously, bookmark, save, keep handy the Other Posts of Note.
And enjoy to next couple weeks! I'll see you on the 28th.
