Yippee! Spring break is here! Even when you home school it is nice when spring break arrives. Just to have the extra time to garden, do a little cleaning, or just plain relax is a special treat. Knowing that the girls can sleep in and I can get a little extra work completed around the house is nice.
Our break started out with a busy schedule, however, the rest of the week should not be quite so hectic.
Catie's school performed "Alice in Wonderland" on Thursday night at a dinner theater. Didn't Catie make a cute Alice? She even spoke with the proper accent!
Although we worked in the yard on Friday and Saturday, I did manage to take a few pictures. The redbud tree and the spirea bush were begging to be photographed.
It seems that we have skipped spring and headed straight into summer. The temperatures have reached the nineties already. I think it may prove to be too hot for my romaine lettuce in the vegetable beds. What do you think?
I was excited to find one of my asparagus plants popping up through the soil.
Easter weekend was lovely. I can't remember ever having such a warm Easter Sunday before. We had a beautiful service early in the morning at church, spent the afternoon with family, and even managed to catch a couple of fish from the pond.
Every tree is leafing out and every plant is emerging from the ground. I hope it doesn't get cold again, or we will loose many of the tender leaves that have grown. I did find a couple of drawbacks to the warm weather we have had: SNAKES! There were two black snakes in my yard today. I managed to run one back into the woods and the other disappeared (under the house perhaps). I hope this is not a sign of what is to come.
How did you spend your Easter weekend?
