Week 15 And that wraps up school
School is out for Christmas finally. I had planned it to be a short week, but I didn't plan it short enough. We started out the week with CC turning 10 - we enjoyed a sunny day hiking in our favorite local park. We managed a couple of days of almost school then took a snow day. LB has her first ballet recital this weekend. We will be off for two weeks (or three) for the holidays.
I'm making big changes for next year. Big changes.
