End of Year Blues
The end of the year is my least favorite time of the school year. The children are even less motivated than at the beginning of the year. As more and more kids are done for the summer, the less my kids are motivated. We spent a lot of time on extra projects this spring which left us a little behind schedule. I try my best to keep us close to the same schedule as the schools around us, so they can enjoy all the summer activities they can. However, schoolwork comes first. If we are to get the boys off to Boy Scout camp without school work hanging over their heads, they must take these next two weeks seriously and get done. If the promise of summer vacation doesn't motivate kids to finish their work, what will? I am out of ideas and out of patience--may be even out of my mind.
