Wednesday means it’s time for our Finishing Strong link up, the gathering place for families homeschooling older kids. Every week we come together to share our experiences navigating the middle & high school years.

Are you almost finished the school year or does your family school year round? My family has leaned toward year round homeschooling for years, but as my girls have gotten older, their summer activities have grown, so now we do a bit of a combination. I try to keep some subjects rolling through June and July, but I let them take a break from most of them.
Whatever you do, I hope you’re not experiencing too much spring fever in your house as you work to keep the learning going.
Speaking of learning, make sure to take a moment to read the helpful posts shared below.
