Weekly Update – Spring Break

Goofing off

We have been on Spring Break, and the kids and I have both been enjoying it. We all needed a break, and I can’t quite believe it is almost over. I could really use another few weeks.

My brother came out to visit us, and he and I went up to Yosemite for a few days. My parents watched the kids, so it was just him and me. It was nice to have a few days alone, but by the end of our stay I was missing the kids so much. Isn’t it funny how that works?

It was great to spend some time with my brother.

The kids have been hanging out all week, not doing too much. Tru has been golfing a little, Decca has been practicing the piano, and Autry has been drawing and singing. Other than that the kids have been playing video games, watching tv, and enjoying the outdoors.

One thing that we all have been watching this week is the premiere of The Legend of Korra. This is the follow-up to Avatar, and the kids have been waiting for it for over a year. The official release date is not until April 14th, but you can get the first episode free on iTunes right now. We all liked the first episode, and the kids are looking forward to the rest of the season.

I have tried to spend some of this week planning for school next year. I haven’t gotten very far, but I was inspired by my trip to Yosemite to do a state study with Decca next year. I plan to use California History for Kids as our main spine for the study. He likes activity-based books, so I hope this will be a good match for him. Other than deciding on doing a state history I have nothing else figured out, nothing. Hopefully I will remedy this problem over summer break.

In other news this week Kingsley got a much-needed bath…

and a shave.  

And that is our week in review.

  1. Sounds like you all had an awesome break. I hope you have a smooth transition back into school.

    I scrolled down and saw more of your gorgeous photos. Thanks for sharing them.

  2. Thanks for the info about The Legend of Korra! We have also been waiting. The ending to Avatar wasn’t quite as satisying as the series and I am so excited that there will be more. I hope it lives up to the hype in my head.
