The End Of Our Homeschool Year {week 24 lesson plans and recap}

Each week, I share our real life, interest-led homeschool lesson plans. I also include a recap of the week prior, so that you can see what changed in real time. This is week 24 of 2022 – the very last week of our official school year.

This was a bittersweet week for me, as my youngest son completed his first year of high school and is now officially a rising sophomore. Because he is my last child, I find myself wishing it would all slow down.

My son however, was quite happy to move on to summer learning. In fact, now that we have a summer plan in place, both of my boys are looking forward to the learning activities coming up in the next two months.

I spent part of last week prepping my son’s official high school transcript for his freshman year. I will be sharing the transcript itself and the process I use to determine what to include, grades, etc. over the course of the next week.
