Happy April

"The sun was warm but the wind was chill.
You know how it is with an April day.
When the sun is out and the wind is still,
You're one month on in the middle of May.
But if you so much as dare to speak,
a cloud come over the sunlit arch,
And wind comes off a frozen peak,
And you're two months back in the middle of March."

~ Robert Frost

Our April is going to be extremely busy! We will enjoy an Easter egg hunt at church and then celebrate Easter with a sunrise service, breakfast, church service and having friends over for lunch. The very next day we will leave for Florida for a week! Greg has been invited to speak at a dinner and the whole family is going with him and will spend a week at the beach and visiting grandparents. We decided to wait and have our spring break then instead of the usual March spring break. This decision made March very long, but it will be worth it when we are soaking up some sun next week.

Nathan has baseball beginning this month, Esther is still dancing and Abby finally has a bit of a lull in her schedule.

The kids all just finished up yearly testing. I am so thankful to have those out of the way. We have about 7 weeks of school left after spring break. It will take us a little longer than normal to finish this year, but it is for good reason. We have short trips planned to go to Greg's parent's cabin, a trip to Colorado to see my sister and a 3 day trip to Myrtle beach...all before summer even officially begins! That's the beauty of homeschooling, you can just pick up and take school with you, work extra hard and double up a few days or just extend your calendar. With our busy spring, I believe we will be doing a little of all three!
