Weekly Wrap Up–Spring Break

We’ve been on spring break since Thursday, April 2.   As you’ll see, we’ve been VERY busy during these nine days.

On April 2, we went to Cyrus McCormick’s Farm, and then to the George C. Marshall Museum in Lexington, Virginia.  

We also visited Lee Chapel while in Lexington.  I was floored by the amount of detail in this 10,000 pound marble sculpture of Lee napping (not dead, napping…that’s what the tour guide said).


Friday we took the girls to the waterpark for the day.  After 8 hours of water play, they were exhausted.


Resurrection Sunday we had a small breakfast before getting ready for church.   First the bleary eyed, just out of bed photos:


Followed by new Easter dresses.



Monday we went on a field trip/service project with our homeschool group to help a local ministry.   Lindsey and I spent half a day sorting clothing, while Olivia and company worked on cleaning used appliances.  We all had a really good time, and the kids are asking when we can go back and work again!


Tuesday we had tea and a living history lesson with our neighbor, Ms. Kay.   She told us about her childhood in Occupied Luxembourg during World War II.

Wednesday was a visit to the optometrist.  Lindsey’s eyes are perfect, mine staid the same, and Olivia was fitted for glasses.  we’ll be picking those up next week.

Thursday we completed our year end testing.   This satisfies the state requirements, and gives me an idea of where we are.

Today (Friday) the girls and I will be cleaning house and getting ready to get back to school next week.  I hope you’ve all had a great week!

Linking up with the Weekly Wrap Up and Collage Friday.

    1. This water park is indoors and is open year round! You can go in the dead of winter...and just up the road is the ski resort.


Thank you for stopping by!
