Encouraging Hearts and Home -- President's Day Week

Is it awful that as a homeschooler I am generally unaware of things like Martin Luther King day and President's day?

Don't get me wrong I have taught my kids about Martin Luther King Jr and the presidents and all those other (dare I say) "little?" government holidays but I never really realize when they occur on the calendar because I just don't pay attention to them.. until we go to do something and I see kids everywhere and realize that they have no school.

We treated Monday like any other school day and even though many local schools are enjoying February vacation this week we're not.  We are so close to finishing up several of our books for the year that we just want to push on through and get our book work done so when the nice weather arrives we can spend lots of extra time outside!

How about you?  Do you take many of the school breaks off or do you set your own schedule?

Some of my favorites from last week's link up:

Marilyn shared a delicious mushroom lasagna that I can not wait to try!  



Rain on a Tin Roof shared a trip to the Whistle Stop CafĂ© and More: A Fried Green Tomatoes Road Trip.  I just loved that movie and would love to visit this area myself one day.


You know how much I love a good book and I found so many great ones I can not wait to read on Fivespot Green Living's 36 Good Books to Read in 2019 list.


I am always on the search for new science experiments to try with my boys (we're only on #58 of our 100 days of science challenge!) and I just LOVED this Weathering VS Erosion Stem Activity and Printable by The Natural Homeschool.  We will be trying this one out soon!
