Whaaaaat!? How is it possibly already MAY? Didn’t we just start this school year a few days ago? I feel like I was just putting up bulletin board boarders and labeling book boxes with my sweet firsties’ precious names!
Well, after a week of Spring Break and two weeks of achievement testing, we’re finally back into the swing of our regular routines and schedule. Homework will start back up again and we’ll start learning about a new Author of the Month! Information about this quarter’s project went home this past week and I can’t wait to see everyone’s creative ideas for serving others.
I think my pregnancy brain is blocking my ability to remember to get out my camera to capture what we’re up to, so here’s a little of what we’ve been doing outside of our testing time. You know, when I remember to take pictures!!! 😉
