Our "school year" is over. Although we tend to be unschoolish in some ways, we still have beginnings and endings, though not entirely (as noted in this post, in which I mention that learning never ends and is always beginning.) But, because we live with a public school teacher, we tend to live more "by the school year calendar" than some homeschooling families.
I arbitrarily declare "We're done!" at some point, then the kids run a victory lap around the house and proclaim that summer has begun.
But, it isn't really over for me. Because I haven't even begun to start planning next year yet.
What about you? Do you plan in the spring, before the school year ends (and then get to proclaim, "I'm done!")?
Or do you plan over the summer?
Or do you school year-round, and thus have various planning times interspersed throughout the year?
I'm known to plan and then discard the plan, so even if I plan over the summer, I end up planning at other times, too.
I'm suddenly quite tired of the word "plan" so I can only imagine how you feel. Must be time to sign off and dive in to what promises to be a busy day.
