Tuesday - the weather was warmer and nicer. I started reading Robin Hood to them over breakfast then they went outside to play. They played in the yard, in the cul-de-sac, in the sprinklers, and in the open space behind the house in a ravine and in a stream.
Wednesday - the weather was warmer and nicer, again. I took off 4 hours from my busiest day of the week to meet our friends at the park. It was wonderful to have all the kids together and outside again. It was a huge improvement over my typical Wednesday.
Thursday - I took the girls in for checkups. Apparently, they are both healthy, happy and well-adjusted. After lunch they both spent the afternoon with friends then went to Judo which happily wasn't on spring break.
Friday - the weather was perfectly warm, sunny and clear. We did a quick clean up Friday morning to reduce the amount of housework we had to do on the weekend. After that the girls played and played.
During the break week, I taught the girls to play Hearts and Rummy so we now have two new card games that we can all play. We had a wonderful week and enjoyed our time together. Do I really have to do school next week?
