schooling through the summer

Since February I have been working only on my kids weaknesses. I have put their curriculum away till August. This summer we still planning on doing some tutoring over at the Mid-South Theropy center. Also I plan on going around the house pricing everything and playing store to help teach Kb the concept of money and also for all 3 can learn how to add taxes, and count money back without using a caculator or something. I want them to enjoy their summer and not get too burned out with schooling, but I still think it's important to do somethings with them that they will think is fun , but learning in the process. I feel that if I'm able to strenghten their weaknesses they will enjoy school more when we actually start back in August. I'm hoping to build their confidence back up where the school has knocked them down. That has alot to do with their anxieties.
