However, both girls are finished with the Haywood County school schedule now, and that left me with a dilemma concerning when to take my spring break. As an experiment, I took a week off when Courtney had her spring break from Appalachian State back in early March. That proved to be a mis-guided decision on several fronts. The second week of March was hardly spring-like, and I ended up spending most of my week putting a new roof on the back porch.
This would be the week I would normally take off, and the weather has been mostly beautiful. As I've been out and about, all I've been able to think about is "I wish I was off this week." I think next year I'll go back to my old routine of taking my spring break in mid April. You can't get pictures like the one below in early March around here!
