Spring Break!

Woo Hoo! I am so excited that it is finally Spring Break. We have had a couple of really rainy, yucky weeks, so maybe a few sunny days and sunshine will help us to enjoy the break from the normal daily duties around here!

DS12 is off to spend the night with the grandparents (his home away from home), hubby is on a business trip (actually, he is stuck in the Atlanta airport waiting for a flight to be able to take him to his business trip to Kansas), so that leaves me and DS11 to watch some movies and chill a bit.

He is watching Kung Fu Panda right now, taking his asthma medicine by nebulizer, and writing the beginning of a new "book." He multi-tasks like a pro already!

As for school, I have been pretty impressed with some of the work that one of my classes did this week. Each year, after we read Thornton Wilder's play, Our Town, we add pages to a scrapbook for our Headmaster called Our School. In it, the kids have to decide what it is that isn't appreciated enough about FCA. Sometimes they really blow me away with their insights and the things that they think are important. Often, I don't realize what really affects these kids. It's a great eye-opener for them and for me. It might even be one for the Headmaster, who knows?

We picked up a couple of new students this week that seem to be genuinely nice kids. It's wonderful that we can still grow a little bit, even in this troubled economy. God is blessing us more and more.
