I love homeschooling. I think I’ve mentioned that here before. I love it for several reasons…. one of them being the freedom to make and follow (or not) your own schedule. So, way back in August when our co-op moms were deciding on Spring Break, we picked the first week of April. That sounded good to all of us. Done. Bam. Then last week we got a call from my husband’s brother asking if we wanted a week of company for their Spring Break. SURE! So today wrapped up Spring Break #1.
Next week starts Spring Break #2, only because it was already on the schedule and we don’t have to go to class on Wednesday as per usual. The Crosby’s will be doing school work, but it will be a tad relaxed. And everybody said…. AMEN!
Spring Break #3 will be later in April, when our son has a cycling race in Monterey. We don’t plan to bring any school work on that trip either. I did alert the pupils that the same amount of math, history and English will need to be done by the end of Spring Break #3…. in order to keep the water flowing in the primed schoolwork pump.
See why I love homeschooling? Here is a photo tribute to spring Break #1, 2012.
Street Hockey Championship in the cul-de-sac.
The Metate Trail in the Spur Cross Recreational Area…. HUGE saguaros!
What would a hike be without some planking?
And to finish off hike #1…. some ruins.
Spring Break #1, Hike #2 at Black Canyon Recreation Trail
The cacti are just beginning to bloom their AMAZING blossoms.
And we discovered there was a river at the bottom of the trial….. that we didn’t plan on… in time, water or food… so we will return to this hike someday when we are prepared.
Goodbye Spring Break #1. Hello Spring Break #2! (I love homeschooling.)
