Spring Break....Again!

You know we homeschool...right?   And you know that lots of rebellious people homeschool...right?  And you know I was rebellious before homeschooling became popular...right?  So what are you gonna do about it if we take 3 WEEKS OFF FOR SPRING  BREAK?   

Actually,  we took of 10 days in Jan. for Florida,  then a week off in March for the flu,  and NOW  we are just taking off for fun...or as my kids said.."I thought we weren't supposed to work on Spring Break?"  I am not sure WHO they have been comparing notes with but I think they talked to the wrong people.

Here is what we have done this week.   

Mon.   Whined and cried and lolligagged around the house cause it was storming, cold and REAL dark outside.  I don't know what the kids did.

Tues.   Woke up determined to do SOMETHING productive this week.   We each had different projects going on.   My eldest was/is on a crafting frenzy.  I have been told this happens to people in the spring.  I have never experienced it.  My son caught and skinned a possum.  It took awhile and then he wanted to slice some meat and cook it.  But it sat outside for too long and I wouldn't let him.  Doesn't rat  opossum  meat spoil faster than other meat?

My girls played outside and got major sunburns...IN APRIL.  Who knew?  I guess the sunscreen needs to come out.  And hats.  And water balloons.  And pools.  Oh yeah,  we have a pool.   Full of chickens. 

I got busy putting things away, finalizing our last 12 weeks and just plain getting the house in shape.  It was needing some exercise.  Or was that me?  Never mind.

Wed.  I went early to Wally World and bought mulch and milk and came home and put the kids to work on the mulch.  They did a great job.  I also arranged a wall of pictures and such that I posted about in DECEMBER.  I am a lazy decorator.  I have to wait for inspiration,  time,  energy, and M M's.  I think it was the candy that put me over the edge. 

We also had some great friends over and had a wonderful dinner.

Thur.  I felt sick.  I think it may have been the candy,  the decorating and I don't know what else,  but we went to the park, shopping,  and running around.  Went to bed at 8:30 and didn't get up til 7.  Not sure what happened there.

Fri.  Woke up and went garage saling with my eldest for a date.  We found lots of good stuff for my son.  Then came home and felt distracted.   Had a great dinner and went to bed a little early again. 

Overall, it was a great week.  I am ready for us to get back to our school schedule again.  So much to learn and so little time.

thanks for reading,
