Summer Vacation

This school year ended for us on Friday the 13th, where we left (after the girls were asleep) on a 14 hour road trip down to Texas to come and visit family. We are still here, and will be her until about the 29th. It feels like we don't have enough time to do every fun thing we want!! <3

I know how you feel, Calvin.

Move Brainstorm

So it's official. We will be done with our lessons in May instead of in June like I'm going to wrap everything up on Wednesday, May 11, take a field trip to the train station that Thursday, and then start summer vacation a month early. We'll do the same with the lessons. Instead of starting in September, we'll start in August, after I leave for basic training. That way, we have the entire summer to pack and move peacefully, and then the girls will have lessons and expirements to distract them while I'm away.

I don't know if my husband will keep up with this blog while I'm away. I don't even know if the military will take me, but I have my hopes up. At least I won't have to worry about what the heck I'm going to do with my children while I pack.

From the 13th until about the 29th, we will be away on vacation visiting family. When we get back, I'll have a babysitter here and there to help watch the children while either my husband and I pack, or a few of my friends and I pack. Either way, I WILL be packing.

I'm packing the workbooks last, just so we can have them on hand if the children get bored during a summer storm. It wouldn't hurt for them to get a head start on next year's work. When it's time to move, I'll just give them each a backpack with their workbooks, coloring books, and utensils needed.

On a random note, Lily just accidently stepped on an ant, and is currently apologizing to it's corpse. "I'm sorry. I didn't mean to squish you. I'm so sorry."
