Snapshot Summary, April 4-10 Spring Break

The last week of the semester is our review week and then we have a break week before we begin the first week of the new semester. This is our spring break week.

The boys went roller skating at the monthly homeschooling skating.
We didn't do anything special really. We had some doctor's appointments (of course!) James is doing well with his new medicine for his epilepsy. I went out to dinner with my good friend, Peg (and had so much fun that I forgot to take a picture.) The boys played outside a lot in the nice, spring weather. They played computer games some, particularly Civilization. We just rested and regrouped for our last semester.
 We enjoyed good food this week. This is our Japanese Steakhouse dinner. The carrots were nothing special, but the steak, fried rice and zucchini were wonderful. We also had a simple salad of lettuce and cucumbers, using Yum-Yum sauce as the dressing.
We had homemade hummus, edamame dip and Asian kale slaw for lunch one day. I love the beginning of fresh spring and summer food.
How was your week? Have you been enjoying spring?

  11. Sounds like a relaxing (ish ;)) week! Glad the medicine is working. :)

  12. We had the week of allergies. It's about to be super bad allergy season here with the live oak about to start putting out its pollen. So not looking forward to it.
