We continued trying to focus on the Lenten season, and of course I filled up a lot of notecards writing a Bible verse every time I got angry. The end of the school year stress probably didn't help! In the midst of Lent, Daddy decided to finally make the giant gingerbread men he purchased on sale after Christmas. Gross! But everyone had fun, and I threw those babies away as soon as I could!

Caitlyn reading her last story of the year
Caitlyn was super excited about field day this year and even thought the cheer I composed for our team was "awesome". Unfortunately, for the third year in a row, she was on a team that stood little chance of winning. She was so discouraged when she realized there was no way, but for most of the day she had fun. Thankfully, my friend saved the day by inviting us over to see her new puppy! No one can be sad around a baby puppy. Even though our CC school year is over, we will keep doing some amount of school until we start 2nd grade next year. But the schoolwork pressure is off quite a bit for now, especially since we wrapped up grammar and writing!

The month seemed to speed up rather than slow down after school "ended". We took field trips to learn about military history and farming, held baby goats, hit the Harrisburg Easter egg hunt, hosted my family for Easter weekend, visited an exotic animal park, and attended The Reluctant Dragon at Imaginon.
