{2012-2013 School Year Calendar}

I'm still working on a daily Schedule for our family, but I did finish our school calendar. This may change as we need it to but I have left lots of room for flexibility. It really is amazing how much a Schedule can change with each baby, each year I find we have to change things up just a little.

 We will have a 36 week plan with 180 days of learning
In our state we need to have 875 hours of class work per school year.
I figure 4.5- 5 hours a day 5 days a week will not be a problem since learning is part of everyday life.
Our school days are Monday -Thursday, Fridays off (we spend this day with our home school group classes), Saturday School and Sunday off.
3 weeks on and 1 week off of school.
August 20th First day of School- This was a day of fun in the Morning and getting used to all our new books in the afternoon. More of a back to school fun day for our family, which we all needed!

I like your on/off schedule. I prefer my summers off completely, but I know a lot of home schoolers have really enjoy a similar set up to this. I hope you year goes well.
