Memorial Day has passed and now thoughts move on to the summer. The sun is out and the weather gets hot. What are we to do?

We, personally, don't take the entire summer off. We need some sort of routine and regularity so we continue to work on some schooling through the summer. We do take about a month off for a mental break, but this year is a little different.
As we are nearing the end of the third pregnancy, we will be doing things different this year. We will be continuing homeschool until the baby comes in late July or early August. That's when we will be taking at least a month off to enjoy and get used to having a newborn in the house. We won't be doing full homeschool, though. With our 4th grader, we will continue math practice and reading comprehension. With our high schooler, he will be working on writing and coding. These are all necessary skills and are important for them to work on. I am enjoying the easier schedule as my energy and focus isn't the greatest right now.
Each year seems to be different, doesn't it. That's why I love the flexibility of homeschooling. It allows us to live our lives all while giving our children the education that they need. What does your family do during the summer? Do you do anything different during the summer?
Look at some of these other posts that we have written about various summer activites and ideas. There are many families that move during the summer and so we are including these posts as well. We have moved quite a few times and we are sharing some of our ideas to keep homeschooling during a move or a break. I hope you are able to use some of them!
