I have great respect for parents that are able to home school. This is a great undertaking. For myself however, I am counting the days until my own kids go back to the “non-summer” routine. Between school/camp physicals at my office and all the playing I do with the family during summer, I’m worn out. I want my kids back to school. I want my girls back in dance class. I need a vacation from my vacation (or at least from my vacation with the kids). Amazing that I used to dread back to school days as a child and look forward to them as a parent. I have decided to take my wife out to dinner tonight (sans kids) and take a couple of deep breaths. I will get ready for school next week and ready for some rest.
