Summer break and summer jobs

We have finished our homeschool for the year and taking a couple weeks off for summer!

Ahhh that sounds so nice...

Really we are finished with our books and we are waiting for the new curriculum to come so we can start a new year!

This year we are going with AOP's Switched On Schoolhouse for our oldest daughter. The 5 subject CD pack was bought (on sale!) 2 days ago and should be here soon. Our youngest daughter is going to use Time4Learning to catch up in reading and math until she is ready for 3rd grade and SOS.

I am so excited! I have been having a stressful time lately...whole other post but not gonna go there. This will take homeschooling off my hands for a bit while I recoup and get my home back in order. The girls are bouncing off the walls ready for school because "it is on the computer and FUN!!!" I am glad they are happy. Nothing like children ready and willing and hungering to learn!

In the meantime my oldest is taking on small jobs to earn the money for her rabbit. She is pulling garden weeds, organizing cabinets, helping pack boxes and whatever else people will pay her for. So far she has about half the money and just 1 week left to earn the rest. I am so proud of her! She doesn't want any help buying her rabbit. She would even like to buy the cage, which would be about $70 over the rabbit cost, if she can get enough jobs. Next summer she plans to hire out as a "mother's helper" during summer break.
