Last year's Clematis vine first bloomed the in the second week of May. The above beauty found this morning shows just how warm our Spring has been, and gives justification to any Spring Fever I am experiencing! 

Although I can "legally" track homeschooling hours through June 30th, this Friday marks the end to the formal, structured, book learning days of our 2015-2016 school year. So, with diligence and perspective we persevere this week to put the final touches on our book work. Great is the temptation to just say, "we're done!" but, no, we'll finish well and then enjoy our long break.
