Last Pinewood Derby

 We've been reading From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler in preparation for our trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art next week. How I love that book! It's one of my favorites from my own childhood, and it was fun so get to share it with Duncan. We watched the movie, too, but it's just not nearly as good as the book.
Besides the above, we've been doing all our regular stuff. Jesse was home last week, so we were a bit lax in our studies. We also had colds, and now we have a pretty serious case of spring fever. But guess what?

Spring break begins NOW!
