It's here! Yep, it is officially Spring!

 Of course with Spring comes Spring Break, at least for the College & Public school families. Still, many Homeschooling families like to follow a traditional school calendar year and/or just like joining in the "Fun" of  a week off too. One difference, which is actually a perk IMO, of being a home-educated family is that you can choose what day to start and what day to finish your Spring Break Vacation. This can really help those family's who have to be more careful with the purse strings, as you can choose to go on your Spring Break right after the main stream vacationers take theirs; which can help you get a better deal on your destination of choice.

 For those of you who are not looking to take time off or still want to have your child do something fun, educational, and Spring inspired during Spring Break, a Spring themed Unit Study is always a good idea.
Spring Surprises
 If Unit Studies are not your thing,  there always games, field trips to places like Butterfly Gardens, or you could even take a minute here and there and do some simple flashcards for kids.

Regardless, what your plans may be, I hope your days are filled with the warmer weather of Spring :)

Until Next time...
