Sunshine, warm weather, rain storms and everything growing all combine to make this a happy time of year. The one spot in the ointment is finishing school! People say homeschooling through February is difficult, but I don’t mind. It’s the end of the year that bothers me most. No one cares, not even me! I want desperately to be done, as does everyone, but we are not. This is the hardest part, we finish by sheer force of will. It sounds dramatic, but this is how it has been for the last week or so at our house, and still another week and a half to go. ugh!
