    Default Spring Break, anyone?

    It's Spring Break (the school kids here only get one week where we always got two, but whatever) and all our usual activities are shut down to make way for weeklong "camps" for displaced schoolkids, so we got a break of our own from running around doing things.

    And it has been glorious. Now if we could find a way to make our door knock-proof? I thought about how it might look to line the outside with spikes, but...
    maybe a nice "no soliciting, no trespassing, class is in session, do not disturb" sign?

    Because right now we're neck-deep in a hands-on, experiential study of lazy-ology, and we're doing firsthand research to support a thesis on what it takes to become Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers.

    we had spring break a couple weeks ago for public school here. We hid until it went away. :-)

    I have no idea when the public school spring break is. I know for the college, but they don't match up. Besides the Boys and Girls Club and a couple of other places offering extra activities, I really didn't notice it.

    We went to Disney for two weeks in February so no Spring Break for us.

    Dh and I run a 4-H STEM club with kids from a bunch of different local school districts and some homeschoolers. All the schools are on Spring Break at different times but I think most of them are done already, most seem to have been the first week or so of April or right around Easter. Because it varied so much, we didn't move or cancel any of our meetings but we did end up with one that had only 9 attendees (our usual is 23-25).

    We are about 11 days from being done with 2015-2016. And I say yay! It's been a long, tough year. I say that we're almost done, but my high schooler won't be finished until around the last week of May, and has two SAT subject exams June 4, so that is his official "done" date.
    We didn't really take a Spring Break. We went to Costa Rica at the end of February, and while that counted for school days (it was VERY educational in so many ways!) we didn't do our "standard" school work. Spring Break here was around Easter, but we just ignored it and kept going.
