Spring Break

After Big Woods, we took two weeks off of school for our off week and a bonus spring break. It was much needed.

I was originally planning to work on mapping the U.S.A by heart on our off week, and planned to map the Northern Border of the United States our first week off. We learned all the states in order from the audio as well as the states and capitals, but we didn't get to the mapping part. Maybe I'll do the audio now and work on mapping at the end. There's just no time for extras and I need a week off.

Read alouds - All-of-a-Kind Family to Mali and Elli and MMM to Bo.
Life went on with soccer, swim lessons, and a few glorious days of spring sunshine before it will snow again.

Malachi wanted a picture in his new shirt that his coaches made for his off season soccer team. 

Academy Spring Soccer started - Malachi almost never has his game jersey on during a game. 

All three kids started swim lessons at The Y

Bo started Little Kickers soccer at The Y

Elli got a new bike, but left it on the driveway at the homestead, and I ran it over. {{{tears}}}
