Spring Break

I want to thank everyone for their sympathy and prayers for the Princess. She is feeling much better.

This week starts our Spring Break, and I have to say that I am so very glad to be able to put aside homeschooling for a few weeks. I'm still feeling a bit worn out from being sick (in one way or another) for the past month, but I'm definitely not going to let that stop me from getting some of those long-delayed projects completed. Yesterday I went through our school room and purged it of unneeded items, including quite a bit of old curriculum. I'm hoping to put some of it on Ebay, but if all else fails it will make its way to the Goodwill. Either way, it has to go.

Today I'm going through the Princesses bedroom. She's at the stage (turning 7 in just a few months) where she is starting to turn to "big"girl toys. So the Princess-themed mega blocks, of which we have about 6 different sets, will also be going on Ebay. I admit it's hard for me to give up these symbols of her younger childhood. Just as it's hard to believe my baby could be turning 7 years old soon. *sigh*

Which reminds me... I gave the Princess an old calender/date book from last year. She loves to pretend she's keeping track of her busy schedule with it. Anyway, she had marked down that her birthday was the 3rd of June, and our Anniversary was the 5th of June. She was showing it to me, when she suddenly paused and said "Mommy, how did you have a baby before you were even married?" I was a little confused by the question, until she pointed out that the 3rd came before the 5th...lol.

Well, I better get to work. Have a great day~

I'm glad the Princess is feeling better. And it sounds like you have a lot planned for spring break. How long is it? Did I read "weeks"?

Our break from our main school subjects is 2 weeks long. This is partly due to the fact that we take a lot less days off than the local public school, so we get an extra long Spring break. However, we do go back to our extra-curricular classes (band,choir,ect)next week. After this break we have state testing and the push to finish up our units for the year.

I will check on that Ebay link and get back to you. I really wish I was better at putting labels on my posts, but I always forget.
