Having children in a year-round school has it’s pros and cons.
– Having kids on different schedules. The girls are year-round but my son started junior high this year so there are three months of the year when one school is in session while the other is not.
– Having ME on a different schedule. I am on a different track than the girls!
+ Kids are more likely to retain information over a shorter time span between grade levels.
+ Less burnout because kids (and teachers!) get regular breaks during the school year.
But the biggest pro of all is…
+ Making the most of the days that we are both off.
On this day, I took the girls to the zoo. We met another family who is on the same schedule as the girls. We brought our lunches and had a wonderful picnic in the zoo.
