the pleasures of a simple spring break

We have been having such a simple, slow and mellow spring break around here. And I love it! In truth, Faith and Ben are on a different school schedule than I am, so they are in school while I'm spring breaking. It's like that every year and it is very fun to be an "at home" mama for that week. One of the things Faith and I have been enjoying every afternoon when she gets home is a quick few rounds of Frog Juice. No matter that it's intended for much younger children. Who cares? We love witchy things, cute graphics and, frankly, an "easier" type game. Combined with a cup of tea, it's a perfect mother-daughter activity. Other than that, I've been reading, knitting, drawing and playing with the boys and generally resting. So nice for a change.





Can't believe it's almost over. No matter--only six more weeks of school then it's summer summer summer. So looking forward to that!

Ooh, sounds perfectly lovely :)I'm definitely one of those who prefers many peaceful, relaxing days at home to a whirlwind vacation for a break.

p.s. you have to share when you try some of Molly's recipes, I haven't picked up the book yet!

Love the container of crayons and the picture of your boys with their silk capes. Rocks and blocks make the best crayons, I say. :)

What fun. I've never quite understood the pressure to go out and fill that time with a lot of traveling, etc. :)

Your spring break sounds very tranquil and relaxing! I enjoy having quiet times at home as well.

I love the pillow you made out of the light blue fabric that I used for the apron. The applique looks fabulous!
