I read this post this morning, and it got me thinking. Why exactly do we follow the traditional schedule, and what would it look like if we didn't? What would it be like knowing that every six weeks (or however many I chose), we could take a week off? And extra time off around Christmas sounds good too... time for baking cookies, reading stories, watching all our favorite Christmas movies...
Then, how to transition the kids to such a schedule? Actually, that might not be that hard. We're already planning, this year, on going through the end of June since we took off a few extra days/weeks here and there. So if we just took July and August off over the summer (8 weeks), then started back up with the new schedule in September, it might transition pretty well!
What do you think? Have a good Tuesday!
