Spring! Finally!

Ah...April flowers are finally making an appearance!
What a nice walk Maggie and I had this afternoon. I took my camera to capture all the buds that are peeking out all over the place.

In Comes April!

As the days of this week
have gone by...
Monday we had a quiet day of school, started reading "The Killer Angels" for literature, and the guys all enjoyed being home after a very busy weekend.
On Tuesday I went down to the Anita C Leight Estuary Center to pick up the "Fur-Bearers" kit, containing the skulls, furs and various other parts of Maryland animals, so that the Biology class could use them to learn about how and why certain animals need certain attributes. I think it was one of the best labs that we have done so far.
We also got a model of a human skull from the library so that they could see how we compare to various types of critters. Interesting!
John had a robotics meet with his FRC team Thursday, Friday and today.
 They had a good time, learned a lot, and it was definitely worth it, although the team won't be going to World's this year.
Brendan got an "A" on his Algebra test! Go Brendan!
Paul had a Birthday on Thursday, which was great! He is such a great kid, and now he is a great 12 year old! We went over to visit our friends the Snows, and they surprised him with a cake, and then we brought Brett and McKenna over here to have Pizza and Apple Pie!

Friday was co-op day. Only four more and the year is over! Wow!
We have some neat plans for next year!
Today I took John down to the robotics meet, and Tim took Paul over to his Baseball practice.
We are still working on the den/guestroom, and it is coming along nicely.
I have to find a carpet or rug, but I think I am going to go to Ollie's discount place.

And then there's these awesome people:
