Spring Break Is......

Monhegan School has a 2 week long Spring Break, which is perfect for those going off island for a vacation, but for us, and the other mother at the school, I knew we'd need to get creative, since we were staying right here. So, we are scheduling the mornings with something to get the kids going every day....
So far, Spring Break is.....
Tree climbing...

Snake catching, or rescuing this defenseless snake from the jaws of our cat, and putting it somewhere else...


taking a break in between games...


building a "bridge" with flotsam...

discovering new cool places to explore...

beachcombing, to find treasure...


witnessing how they deliver dirt to the Rock...(there were 3 fully loaded dumptrucks that were barged in from the mainland, where they drove onto the beach across that ramp, and then when emptied up by the schoolhouse, they drove back to Fish Beach, and BACKED up the ramp and onto the boat....

and finally, Spring Break is...spending way tooooooo much time with your little sister. Now into week two, if anyone has any other suggestions of what we can do with 4 kids on Monhegan, feel free to chime in! Actually, when the weather is right, we are taking them lobstering.

  1. A scavenger hunt!? A day with mom, and a day with dad each? (For a break from each other!) Looking for mushrooms or leaves or flowers and identifying them in a book or online? "Let" them make dinner? Or just dessert?
    This is probably already stuff you've all done before.
    These pictures of the kiddos are fantastic. The last one of Arlo and Jorgie speaks volumes!
    I LOVE the one of Arlo curled up on the pebbly rocks. Great mood and composition.
    Have a fun week!
