Reading and math take a back seat during the summer months as we find ourselves enjoying the beautiful summer weather.  Don't get me wrong, we still do those things, but our school year "routine" flies out the window.

No weekly themes, no lesson plans-- just "flyin' by the seat of our pants so to speak.

However, we do still find time to make various crafts and art projects, which come in handy during the hot afternoons or after several days in the sun.
