Though I'm still slightly conflicted about over programming his summer, we've decided to enroll L in summer school. This means he'll have the regular routine of going (mornings only) to school & doing class work for three weeks in July. The course is specifically for French immersion kindergarteners making the transition to grade one, so I hope it'll be worthwhile for him.
The real proof that his teacher & school have started him off on the right foot was when I asked him if he'd be interested in going to summer school: he responded enthusiastically, yes!
Now to enjoy a week of sleeping in before summer school gets going...
