Our schedule normally revolves around swim team practice, but with a 3 week break from swimming practice, I've been spending my usual solitary productive evening hours with my children. We've been going shopping, playing Jeopardy on our Wii, talking by the fire, and watching movies. Next week, though, swim team practice begins again and we will be back to our "normal" schedule. Spending so much down time with my children has been fabulous, though!
While my daughter and I were out running errands and shopping one evening, we treated ourselves to a dinner out at Cracker Barrel (one of my favorite restaurants). On the way out, I saw a delightful small quilt and decided that I must have it for our kitchen. When I discovered it was 25% off, the deal was sealed! I LOVE my new, adorable "coffee quilt."

We are in our next-to-last week of studying ancient Greece. Then, we will move on to ancient Rome for the remainder of the school year. We watched a very good video about Alexander the Great, National Geographic - Beyond the Movie - Alexander.
