We took a week off and it's still winter but I called it spring break. We'll take a few days off in April or May and I'll call that Spring Break Jr.
Our break looked like a blanket fort, a teddy bear picnic, walks through the woods, a playdate with friends, library time, solving the puzzle mystery of a Highlights World Adventure free trial, an impromptu presentation on the human body (his daddy's kid for sure), watching an Alice in Wonderland play, baking banana bread together, finally checking out the live-action version of The Lion King, a few rounds of Sorry, baking together, discovering a new-to-us homeschool group, planning our next science unit (electricity!), lots of indoor and outdoor playtime, lots of coloring, A officially finishing the very last of the books on his bookshelves, Nana springing into action to send a few more, and some fundraising ideas so we can buy all the level two books in the TGTB library (it's so cool to see him try, "fail," and try again with his many business ideas. He spent half an hour gathering ordinary pebbles from our yard over the summer and quickly learned that those just don't really sell. He's also sent art and video concerts out in the past. He had a thought of charging people $3 apiece to come pet our dog and asked me, "Do you think that's a good deal?" I said, "Well, that depends. Would you pay a friend $3 to pet his dog?" "No. I can pet dogs for free all the time. Hmmm. I'll keep thinking.").
