Breaks from school are always a fun time when we can do things together that during the school year there just isn´t time for. Here are some highlights from Spring Break.
On the first official day of Spring Break we took the kids to Guadalajara. See previous posts for photos of that trip.
Then we concentrated on Holy Week. Resurrection Sunday was coming and we did various activities to focus our eyes on Jesus dying and rising again. We made yarn egg decorations with which we decorated the tables at church on Easter Sunday, made cross posters with other children at church on Good Friday, talked at home about each day leading up to Jesus´s death, enjoyed a lamb dinner with other brothers and sisters at church and had an egg hunt.
The second week of break was spent doing homework, reading books, going to the park, and playing water games to celebrate the warm weather. On the last day of break we made a bonfire with some friends and gobbled up hot dogs and roasted marshmallows.
