Spring has come!

It's been a while. We've been busy with vacation, school, and snowboarding. Now that snowboard season is over for this year, I'll have more time for many things. We're also done with vacationing for a while, so I guess that leaves us with school. At least school is moving along well. A few subjects are already wrapping up for the year. I may have the girls start on the next level or I may just fill in with library books for a while.

French and German are on spring break this week so we made a quick trip to visit family. I think spring break was scheduled in the middle of the class (it ends in May) but it sure messes up our schedule since Rosie Jane has a break from dance next month. Oh well, we'll just keep working on school and maybe take a day trip to Williamsburg or Charlottesville next month. Spring is a lovely time to visit either place.

You can tell it's spring - I'm starting to get curriculum catalogs in the mail already. It's time to start thinking about what we're doing next school year. As I've already said, I know what we're doing for most everything but there's still a few things up in the air. I'm also looking forward to the convention and looking at the vendors there, you never know what you're going to find. I'm hoping to find just the right thing for a few holes that I've got to fill.

One of the things I'm really looking forward to now that it's spring - we'll get to start doing school outside again. We've done school on the deck, in the hammock (best for reading books), and also on blankets in the backyard. Time for that again. We're also going to get in some science and p.e. time by taking the dog for walks in some of the nearby parks. It's time to get outside!
