One of the advantages to homeschooling is you can make your own schedule.
You don’t have to go on vacation in the middle of the summer. You can go when it’s less crowded and the rates are lower.
If the summer is too hot to be outside, you can have school then and allow more time off in the spring and fall when the weather is more pleasant.
You can take shorter breaks throughout the year and not have the major adjustment that comes with school starting back, or have any problems with boredom over breaks.
Those are all great reasons to try homeschooling in the summer.
But we don’t.
Because my husband is a school teacher.
