Default Re: What are some of your reasons to HS?

Three more reasons have come up recently. First of all, because we're on a six-day-a-week, year-round schedule with a very light curriculum, we have plenty of time to get everything done. If we get whacked with one germ after another, as in this cold season, we can let things slide until we are all feeling OK and still be on track--no dragging anybody to school with a pocketful of Kleenex because they're "not too sick" and the absences are piling up. Second, I don't have to worry about getting a little girl to the bus stop when the snow is going sideways, the preschooler would rather be asleep, and the baby wants to nurse. Third, because we start our school year in July and end it in June, we can keep Easter Week and the Twelve Days of Christmas, take birthdays off, and blow off schoolwork to hit the beach when the weather is perfect (where Sophia is exploring tide pools, examining how to make water run all the way down an inclined plane made of sand, hunting fossils, etc., so that's really school--but still!).
