New School Year

I can't believe our 8 week spring/ summer break is almost done.  We start back up with school this Thursday, July 1.  We will then have school Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday each week in July and August.  We will begin full weeks in September after Labor Day.  The kids like getting back to school in July, because it means we can take more days off during the school year and also get done with school by the end of April.  I like starting school in July, because it means they won't be fighting with each other all day. 



We finished our school year on April 30.  We are taking an 8 week break and will start back up on July 1.  During the months of July and August, we will only do school work 3 days a week.  We will be able to do fun stuff and field trips on the other days.  After Labor Day, we will start doing full weeks.


Wrapping up the school year

We have 10 more days of this school year and then we will be taking an 8 week break before starting the next school year.  It's been a busy year.  I am so happy to be almost done and I know the kids are ready to be done too.  I can't wait to see what next year brings.


Bentonville Battlefield

We went here when they had their re-enactment in March.  It was crowded and we didn't get to see everything we wanted, so we went back today.  Here are a few pictures:


Cedar Point nature trail

Last Thursday, we decided to go Cedar Point and walk on the Tideland Trail.
Here are some pictures:

It is finally warming up here in NC.  The boys got new bikes and they have been enjoying riding them when they finish all of their school work.


Well, it has been a long time since I have updated this blog.  February was a good month.  We celebrated my oldest's 8th birthday.  We also enjoyed some snow, a rare thing for Eastern NC.  We didn't go anywhere special in February since it was so cold, but we did enjoy some time off of school for a couple of days.


Beach day

It was a beautiful day today.  We did our school work and then headed for the beach.  There were a lot of shells and the kids enjoyed looking at them and collecting them.  We ended up going on a 4.5 mile walk.



We had a good Christmas break.  We were able to take a couple weeks off from school and get rested.
