it has been a wonderful week having school out for spring break. it really did reconfirm my excitement to home school next year and have this time daily as a family. this week we set out to have some relaxing but fun times together. we spent some time at home in the blow up pool, we went strawberry picking, we went kite flying, we went bowling, and today we headed to the beach. the beach is always such a great place to go to spend some time playing but it is especially fun this year as all of the kids LOVE it. i will be sad to see school back in session next week, but know that summer is right around the corner.
