Experts said that boredom is good for kids. After a month long of summer nothingness, I think I get what they mean.
In my last post, I mentioned that we’ll be homeschooling my incoming 6th grader this school year and that we decided to try it out early to sort of figure out how it would be like if we are actually doing it. But a week into our trial, I began to think that this is a really BAD IDEA.
Finding summer activities for the kids is something I always do around early March. Taking notes of some of the kids’ interests, I would read through several blog posts on available workshops and classes and see if there’s anything they can join in. But most of the time, we never really got around to join any of this activities. Instead, we design our own classes and try out different things our way.
