Countdown To End The School Year

We've begun the countdown to the end of the school year....somewhat.  Today is Samantha's ballet gala.  She's so excited.  Her older brother will be doing the Daddy-Daughter dance with her because Daddy could not get time off from work to make it.  I know, we're all disappointed about that, including Dad.  They did it together last year, and it was a tear-jerker.  Every time I watch the video, I cry.  But big brother is glad to step in and be her partner.  This will mark the end of ballet until the Fall.

We're also attending our state homeschool convention on Memorial Day weekend.  We've been waiting for this for months.  We get to stay at a beautiful hotel.  And because it's in Orlando, we'll get to visit Magic Kingdom for one day.  I've signed up our older kids for the teen camp.  They're excited about making new friends and purchasing some new books at the convention.  Every time we attend, we each buy new books for our home library.  We all love to read.  The books we find at the convention are books our local libraries and book stores don't carry, like books that are written by homeschool authors.  I'm also looking forward to attending workshops and listening to some speakers, especially on the topic of high school homeschooling.  Anyway, this will mark the end of the school year and the beginning of summer.  Even though we do some homeschool through summer....but more on that on another post.
