Weekly Wrap-Up: First Week Back

One good thing about long vacations is that we're always ready to get back to school. Jesse left on Sunday to return to college to begin the second half of his junior year, and we started back on Monday. Did I mention that Jesse got all A's last semester? If I did, it's worth mentioning again.

Our regular activities rarely begin all at once after a break, so we have weeks like this to ease back in.

We spent practically the whole week at home. Duncan had his second guitar lesson, and we had American Heritage Girls; but besides that (and youth group and a teen event) we stayed home.

Duncan is now officially in 7th grade. We've been kind of wishy-washy about whether to move him up "officially" or not, but we decided to go ahead and do it. He's just…ready. He was very much involved in this decision and agreed that he would need to work more diligently in order to do 7th grade in one semester.

If this week is any indication of his diligence, I am very confident in our decision!

Laurel has an easy week. Her co-op classes all start back next week, so she was doing a little catch-up, reviewing for the ACT, and studying for her driver's permit. This weekend she is in Nashville with her dance group performing at a women's conference. I'm glad she's had this time to relax because she'll not doubt be loaded with schoolwork next week.

We have incredible spring-like weather here and I'd like to be out hiking; but because I am a ridiculous procrastinator, I'll be spending the weekend doing lesson plans for my American Lit class. Ah well. It was worth the relaxing 4 weeks of break!

    I'm glad to know we aren't the only ones that ease back into their routine after break. :)
