Spring Break!

OK, I think I am officially calling this Spring Break. Today, I did laundry and I let the kids do what always filled my school vacations... watch tv all day, lol. Pathetic, I know, but at least they were watching Zoboomafoo and The Magic School Bus instead of The Love Boat. They've also been working on their Walt Disney unit study... by watching classic Mickey Mouse cartoons. That counts, right? Right??

But aside from a little brain melting in front of the tv, our regularly scheduled life-learning is always in session: LEGOs, drawing pictures (that are getting better and better every day!), various Leap Frog toys (Cassia is getting really good at identifying letters and Cameron was typing his spelling lists into the Leap Frog Library), and lots and lots and lots of running around (PE) and games of make-believe. We also have gymnastics and a field trip with the home school group coming up in the next couple days, but since we're leaving on Thursday for our Big Trip, I don't know that I'll be able to blog about it. I'm sure DH will be bringing his laptop, so I may check in with a surprise update or two but officially...

We're on vacation! See you in April!!!

Hope you have a fantastic vacation! And yes, Mickey Mouse cartoons DO count - they are research after all, aren't they?

ROFL about the Disney cartoons. ROFL

And hey, we've always, always counted those dear Kratt brothers and Ms. Frizzle's class as science buddies. = )

Unfortunately we won't make it on today's field trip. There is one on a Saturday next month I was wondering if you're going to, and if so would you like to carpool?
