Spring Break will Break us All

Nah, spring break isn't that bad. Without an Easter trip this year, we're finding things to do around here. It helps that a new family arrived a week ago and we've been busy having them over to the house and going out yesterday to Spencers. Mostly though, the days pass with school work. I'm a mean mom. Rebecca started the break with a Handwriting workbook and instructions for spellingtime.com. She also had a book, Amber Brown, to read for class. To that we added her normal piano practice and another book, Because of Winn Dixie.

The other kids created their own lists. Spellingtime became a quick favorite, and for math we added funbrain/math. Nicholas was given Magic TreeHouse books by his teacher, and I've got 3 kids doing Rosetta Stone French. Piano for Katherine, daily reading for Jonathon. And the rest of the time is left up for play.

We did have tennis until all other 9 kids decided April was the time to stop. The coach doesn't want to do a class for 2 kids, but I do want them to continue so I will call him up and see about having something on Saturday mornings instead. Rebecca is progressing nicely and she doesn't want to lose it.

Right now though, the kids just got home from swimming and we're watching Fairly OddParents. And I'm tired. And it's dinner time. Suppose I should get something on the table.
