It is that hectic time of year when all of our activities are wrapping up for the year and everything is requiring a little extra time. My living room is covered in dance costumes, the dining room table is littered with science fair project materials, and I’m tripping over fencing gear in the foyer, but oh so soon, we will be enjoying the lazy days of summer. I can’t wait for days at the lake and evenings at the park. Before we pack up all our school books for the summer, this is always when I spend a bit of time choosing what will we will be using for homeschooling in the fall. I like to order everything now, in order to have time to pursue the new items at my leisure over the summer. It also gives me time to make adjustments before the curriculum providers hit the end of summer rush in which shipping times can be delayed or items may be back-ordered.
