The sun is shining, hurray. I am ready for spring to make its grand entrance, how about you? It sure does make for funner learning experiences though we had a blast this past week in the northern snow.

Homeschool Week 22

This past Saturday evening (February 11th), we packed the family up, snow gear and all and headed up north for the week. My in-laws have a place just south of Gaylord. They let us hold down the fort for a few days and it was a blast. And yes there was snow, lots of it.  It snowed pretty much every day on top of snow they received from a huge storm they had a month ago or so. We definitely took advantage of it though it was freezing and not my cup of tea, ha!

The girls enjoyed making a snow fort and snow-girl. The snow was perfect for packing so it was not a challenge to make a snowman, or snow-girl for that matter.  After snow 101, we did attempt to do some regular schooling to stay on top of things. Though we took a break from curriculum I brought along enrichment sheets and activities. They even practiced their piano recital pieces on a keyboard that my mom-in-law keeps handy up there.

Sweet Pea (8.5), enjoyed an educational game that I can’t wait to share with you in a review so stay tuned for that. It turned out to be a hit as it was for her age and up. It definitely sparks creativity but enough of that. The review will be made available sometime next week.

Friday, February 17, 2012, we jumped back into our Palaestra routine after returning from our trip the night before. The girls woke up ready to start the day. They sawed logs all night as I know our trip was busy fun. This mom needs a vacation from a vacation. Ha!

I hope everyone has a blessed weekend!
