Extended winter break for us!

This past week was a VERY busy week for us.  We finished up our trip in Ohio, drove for 3 days, spent 2 nights in a hotel, and finally made it home. To spend the weekend packing boxes, unpacking the van, and trying to get ready for Daddy to come home!  

We haven't gotten started on school work yet, though our winter break is coming to an end.  It will be a rough few weeks as we deal with packing, moving, and unpacking.  I started thinking about Adisson's school years...in Kindergarten, his Dad was deployed, in 1st grade we moved to a new state and added another younger brother, in 2nd grade, we moved off post into a different house, in 3rd grade we moved to a new state, and now in 4th, we're moving yet again, but thankfully for the last time for awhile.  It's a good thing he's resilient.  :)

So last week, I talked about how one of things we'll be focusing on this half of the year is better paragraph writing.  I also plan on reviewing the importance of spelling with Adisson and reading comprehension with Zander.  We're also adding in some private piano lessons, more science experiments (hopefully a science fair), on-purpose art projects, and reading.  We do a lot of that already, but I want to work on better scheduling it so we're more prepared and have a better time working on stuff.

Ok, I don't want to cut this short, but I've got more projects than I have time and a husband who will be making his way back to me soon.  :)
