A Little Break!

We took off of school last Friday to join the homeschoolers for bowling. The group has been meeting once a month for skating and once a month for bowling all year, but this is the first time we went to the bowling. We loved it! We decided that we would like to do that for a while instead of, or in addition to, the skating. Carter found out that it's not as easy to hit the pins in real life as it is on the Wii :)!

Afterwards, we had lunch at McDonalds and then went for a swim at the wellness center. It's such a relaxing two hours for me, and the kids love the big pool. I take the time to write in my journal, read, and just sit and watch. It's as good for me as it is for them!

We've been working twice as hard with school...trying to finish before testing in mid may. It isn't necessary for us to be finished before testing, but we would like it to signify the beginning of summer break for us. We are ready!!!

We haven't made the bowling yet, but plan too. The swimming looks GREAT and I look forward to hearing you guys are done for your year. :)

How is your father?

Looks like fun! Are you going to make your goal of mid-May? We have just 2 weeks left at our house, then state required testing for youngest son. However, there is a rumor that science might continue because they love it....

Hi Bev
Yes, we will make the goal, but it has been a lot of work. I keep asking them if it is what they want, even with the extra work, and they continue to say yes! Madison will have about 3 weeks more of math to do, but it shouldn't be a problem!
We love science too :). I would love to continue some of the writing during the summer, but I don't think the kids would!
Good luck finishing up!
