Spring "Break"

Since we're ending school the last week of May, we continued doing school through this Spring Break week. We had a fun schedule with some school in the morning, a Spring cleaning job, and a fun activity each day.  
 We were thankful for warmer days and picnic lunches! Still needed our jackets!
 We tried out roller skating for the first time!
 Dentist appointments may not of been a highlight. Haha
 On a rainy afternoon, we painted.
 That evening we dyed Easter eggs. We tried a new design- we colored hot hard boiled eggs with crayons. The crayons melted and made a pretty swirl.

The girls made a cake that looks like a carrot garden with Peeps!
 Yard work! I made a few trips to Home Depot this week. One of my favorite things to do is be outside. This week I spent a couple days weeding, planting, and laying wood chips. Jesse power washed and worked so hard on the yard. He's quite a guy! He not only worked at the office, but worked his tail off in the yard.
There were some pretty competitive Hangman and Tic Tac Toe games. 
I didn't get any photos of it, but we've been doing those dozen Resurrection Eggs that countdown to Resurrection Day. It's been encouraging to set time aside to think about and talk with the kids about the sacrifice Jesus made so that we may be reconciled to Him. He lived a perfect life, which is the only acceptable sacrifice for our sin. He is such a loving and holy God- I thank Him for making a way for me to live at peace on earth and for all eternity with Him. Oh glorious day!
