Everybody's lives revolves around school, whether it is because you are in school, your kids are school aged, or the vacations people take in the summer because the kids are out of school.

Not all schools have the same schedules here. My nephew's school goes on vacation earlier than other schools, and they are out 2 weeks longer. In general schools here have a 4 to 6 week break in the summer. The school year begins around the third week of July to end of July.

For us right now it's thank goodness for cousins! We used to do day trips, and I think I will propose one or two. He has also gone off with his best friend and his best friend's family for a week at a beach resort. My nephew kind of likes being at home - vacation and weekends are the only time he can just putter around the house. During the school year he's out by 6:30 in the morning and back again at around 6:30 in the evening as he does his homework at my place. That's a very long day for someone who is not yet 13.

lol I homeschool so school being out has never been a factor for me. Schooling is part of living for our family so our schedules don't really change much.

There's a positive point to homeschooling.
