How is your summer going?
Wed, 07-17-2013 - 11:47am

We're halfway through summer here.  We got off to a not-so-summery start, but this week we're under heat advisories (yuck!) so even though the summer is halfway over, it's only just starting to feel like summer.  

My 9YO has a summer homework packet (80 sheets of math) that he needs to have done before school starts.  He also has to do two book reports.  We have the books, but he hasn't cracked them open yet.  I need to get more firm with him on it, but I really didn't want to spend the summer harping on him over homework.  Last year, we waited until the last minute and I swore that would NOT happen this summer!
