Summer at our house is pretty great.
But, our kids might argue that point with you. Each day they are required to do 4 pages in their workbook, reading for at least 20 minutes, piano practicing, cleaning their rooms, and maybe 1 more chore.
In all, this might take about 1 hour.
I hear some interesting arguments about why this is completely unfair. Summer, they tell me, is all about playing video games, swimming, and playing with friends.
Yet, I am steadfast and immovable. I am momzilla. And, my kids' brains will not turn to mush on my watch.
Plus, isn't it fun to see how smart kids are? I love watching their brains work away.
