colorful day

Today was the last day of school for us here at the Franklin School of Arts and Academics (our homeschool). We have successfully promoted the kids and will have a third grader, first grader, and a preschooler in the fall.

To celebrate, we had a field trip to a few of our favorite places: the Art museum & strawberry picking.

enjoying the art


This was the room where you could pick out your favorite prints, set them up and pick out words that describe what you see and feel. Very fun for the kids (and me).

How funny that we would see this chandelier after seeing one just yesterday on Eric Carle's blog- YES, Eric Carle has a blog! (thanks, Jes, for the info!)


Too bad it's blurry- we loved this abstract about the sun rising.




What a great day- the sights, the colors, the sounds, the smells and tastes- all good! Now on to summer break.......

Yeah! We are working hard to be finished. We're almost there. It seems like it is dragging on and the kids are so ready to be done.

The art museum looks like alot of fun. I love strawberry picking. We actually are growing some strawberries here this year. Can't wait until they're ripe.

Congrats on the end of the school year!!!

I will be jumping into homeschooling this fall with a K5, first and third grader, so I love hearing all about how you handle it. You make all things seem so sunny and fun!
