Is summer over yet?

Logan asked this morning if he could do school. Apparently, a week's worth of swimming lessons has put him in the mindset of needing a bit more of a schedule. Up until VBS earlier this month, we had maintained a nice rhythm of easy schoolwork in the mornings. That went down the drain quickly with the out-every-morning-by-8:30 thing, and we've only seemed to stay in that mode for the past three weeks. I've still managed to work on the art study that I had planned for the summer. Our focus has been on Monet, as all three dc are enchanted with the idea of painting the same scene over and over and over throughout the years. Some great resources we've used:

That's all well and good, as far as Logan is concerned, but he's ready for the full-on kindergarten treatment. So I guess it's time to pick a date and call it official. This is made much more difficult by the fact that we could--or could not--have a six month old baby girl joining our family in a few weeks. Should I go ahead and plan to start, and then if we postpone, just flow with it? Should I get going now, knowing that we will be on hiatus if this little one is meant for us? What's an adoptive mom trying to homeschool three kiddos to do?

My husband and I just finalized our first adoption. We adopted 3 siblings. The boys are 9, 11 and 13.
We have a little adoption goal of 10 children.
