One of the benefits of homeschooling is that you get to pick your own week for Spring Break. I thought I was being smart by taking it the week before the rest of the state breaks. I came to find out that everyone in the surrounding states took this week off, however… and that means all the parks in Arkansas are full of out-of-state guests (like ours). I guess sometimes you can’t get everything you want. Our trips around the towns here have been nice, though. Hardly any crowds to speak of. We have been having a lot of fun with our buddies from Texas. Here are a few of our photos from the past few days:
As you can see, I’m too busy to blog. I do plan to get back to my regular blog routine as soon as I can, though. Like I said in this post, I have standardized testing next week for the children… so expect delays in here! Today we are off to go camping (despite the fact that there may be some rain).

OHH I see you!! that should be your new profile pic its BEAUTIFUL!!!
Nice pictures. That is a neat advantage with home schooling. You don’t have to worry about people crowding on hot spots during spring breaks. I remember one time when we had to cancel our vacation to this cool place because of too much people. What a bummer.
Hey…I just posted a picture of a similar yellow flower!
Hey Tanya. 😉 My teeth look goofy in that photo. I need my Crest white-strips again (conveniently in storage in Texas as they have been for 18 months now). Thanks for your sweet comment, though.
Frank – Yes, I love taking off-peak trips and visiting field-trips while regular school kids are trapped in schools. 😉
Keri – Thanks! I’ll have to come check out your flower photo. I would love to know what type of flower I shot.
