We all need a break sometimes. However, I have found for us, we only take a summer break. We may take a day or two at Christmas and a week when we travel. Or if we take a long weekend, we may take a day. One day a year I have a big meeting and due to my schedule that day, there is no school.
Frankly, we would rather get in the days required by the state as fast as we can and have a longer summer break. It works well for schedules around here.
The thing about homeschooling and being employed is you can work your breaks around your schedule. I encourage you to find what works best for you family.
