Will they go to regular high school?

Before I talk about the one homeschool question that drives me nuts (well, there are many, but this week I have ONE), I have exciting news: Collage Friday is BACK!

Testing, Home Improvements, and a Milestone - Collage Friday

The school year is FINISHED. 

For the next three weeks I am not thinking about school. I am not planning for next year. I am not making my children do math.  I might read aloud to them (just because we love it so much), but I think that's it.

My children have worked SO HARD over the past nine months and they deserve a break. 

And guess what?  This mom deserves a BREAK.
