Busy March

We're still plugging away at our school work, looking forward to summer vacation - just 10 and a half weeks left! Not that I'm complaining, mind you, it's just that we've had some beautiful sunny weather lately and that makes it so much harder to do lessons!

David likes to play with play-doh, color, sticker things, run around outside, blow bubbles and cause general chaos during school hours.

We had friends come stay the weekend and it was so much fun! The kids all slept well enough that at least we weren't dying of sleep deprivation. We got a couple games of pinochle in and even played Bananagrams - whoot!

The weather was nice enough for the kids to be outdoors most of the weekend, which they loved. We walked and dug in the dirt and went for tractor rides.

David was super tired after they left!

We finished the Winter term of our homeschool co-op during the last week of March. It was a lot of fun, as usual, but I'm not sure I'll teach three classes again - that was a little much! Allison made a diorama for her Book Report class.

She read Mystery of the Vanishing Horses. The scene is of a canyon with horses in it and a mine in the back corner. She had a lot of fun painting and creating her scene.

We also finished up our AWANA program the same week. Both girls received book awards. Earlier in the month, they raced their cars in the Grand Prix....

Abby won 3rd place for the design of her car in the Sparks category!

Allison won 2nd place for the design of her car in the T&T category!
