April Plans

IMG_8501

It is hard for me to comprehend that April is here!  The past 8 months of homeschooling have flown by and it is hard to believe that we only have a little over two months left of our official school year.  I am happy to say that the snow in our yard is almost gone, we have been spending many more hours outdoors and Z’s baseball season starts in a few weeks.  April will be a busy month as we work on the last edition of the Z news and finish up some other big projects we have been working on.  Here is what we have planned so far…..
