Ninety-five days — that is the time between the last day of the 2018-19 school year and the first day of the 2019-20 school year. That sounds like a lot of time off, but in all reality it is not. Ninety-five calendar days is roughly the equivalent of the beginning of the school year to Thanksgiving Break.
During those 95 days there will be work, baseball and softball games, swimming lessons, vacations, summer school, Independence Day, county fair and many other things which will make those 95 days feel like nine.
With all that said, I encourage all of you to make sure to take time to recharge with your family. This can be simple, spend time outside, go to a ball game, go on a picnic, read a book together as a family, go to the library, go swimming, play board games (maybe even some educational ones), join the Summer Reading Club, go to a museum or anything else that makes your family happy.
This time to recharge will help your children and you be prepared for the sprint that is the school year. Enjoy your summer break and I will see you in August.
