We had a lovely Easter. It began with bunny-shaped chocolate chip scones, one of my kids' favorite breakfast. James was the only one who wanted to dye eggs, and so he did dye a few, but he missed doing it with other people, so he didn't dye many. Hope and Eddie came over for Easter dinner and then we played board games after dinner. It was quiet, simple and lovely.
Katie and Sam helped cook, serve and clean-up a dinner at a homeless shelter and loved it. They also packed a lunch for the next day. Katie and Sam were impressed by how grateful the people were, and are now wanting to seek out other community service projects.
Mostly we have been preparing for a very eventful summer coming up. May has Sam and Alex's graduation, our dinner theater performance, Quentin's 12th birthday party and Sam's 19th birthday. Then Katie's starts collage and then Quentin begins his summer acting camp, which is putting on The Hobbit this year. We are looking into a few options for James next year as he begins high school and am meeting with an educational consultant on Saturday.
This week's school work went well, but not yet much to show you. James is continuing to study Midsummer Night's Dream. They are also studying the crusades and physics of roller coasters. This week at our co-op, James worked on building a few different features in the coaster and to solve how to stop the marble gently at the end of the ride.
How was your week?
