This is the perfect time to live in Sacramento, California. The weather has simply been divine. Mid 70s, slight breeze, glorious sunshine with wispy clouds ever so often… Hopefully it will rain a bit more before the scortching summer heat arrives as we did not have a wet winter and everyone is worried we are going back into drought mode. But for now, on my Spring Break, it has been delicious.
Here are a few flowers in my garden that have decided to bask in this great weather:
School has been really fun this year. The kids just concluded learning about the Bill of Rights and the Three Branches of Government – for their culminating projects they did a music video and then a stop-motion video (respectively) explaining each. Super silly and fun. They also wrote a biography and did a research project on a founding father or mother of the US. Here, they are dressed up ready to present their biography:
We also lucked out at Marin Headlands this year and it only poured down rain on us in the mornings – the afternoons were full of beautiful sunshine.
We are now moving into learning about the Louisiana Purchase, Lewis and Clark and then on to the Civil War. Its an exciting and very packed full final nine weeks.
I’ve been doing a bit of hiking and exploring, not as much as I had planned as I am tutoring after school and trying to fit in writing the next book in “The Treasure Chest Mysteries.” I’ve gone on a couple of marches: Women’s March and the March for Our Lives. So amazing to be out there with people who care about our country.
And here it is April tomorrow! I hope spring is being gorgeous where ever you are as well. Enjoy!
