Slinking into the end of the year

In a sense, the end of the year has snuck up on us. It's actually been a crazy spring! Snowboarding went into April, including a trip to Colorado for Nationals. We got back from that and were cranking out the schoolwork and planning for vacation. April and early May were busy months with school, dance, and work. We pretty much wrapped up school by May 15 and left for vacation on the 16th. We took a tour of the National Parks of the Southwest, hitting the big ones and a couple of small ones.

I was organized, planned ahead, and got the girls testing done before we went on vacation. The results came while we were gone and now I need to keep track of them until I get the paperwork ready to file for next year. I should probably do that soon, except it's not due until August and school isn't even out yet here.

We got back from vacation and they've got a bit of school to finish up. Sweet Pea is doing one more module of physics, reading some history, and yesterday she asked what her next school book was. She's got a stack of books in her room that she wants to read but I guess wasn't interested in any of them yet. Rosie Jane is finishing up her science as well and she'll be doing math through the summer when she's home. I feel like it was a frenzy of school, vacation, and now we're just slinking into the end of the year. Sweet Pea will be done as of Friday since after that she'll be working at camp most of the rest of the summer until early August. Rosie Jane will finish science early next week but she already considers herself a freshman. How did they get so old??


  1. You guys have had a busy year like us sounds like. We've been on vacation, youth camp, etc. Just now getting back around to our books.
    Your girls are doing great in school. My DD and I are going to be working on her Algebra this summer also.
