I must confess that until now I never really appreciated (or observed much, for that matter) Spring Break. My previous studies were done all year long rather than focusing intensively during Semesters (except in some cases), but in college I have no choice. Now I finally understand the anticipation of Spring and Summer Break! Believe me, it’s not that I don’t like studying – I actually enjoy it most of the time. Rather, it’s just that the human mind really does need a break after awhile.
This past week I’ve enjoyed designing and sewing costumes with my sisters for our film project. We set up the sewing machine and all our materials in the Guest House and worked away at it. The weather has been wonderful recently, so a little gardening got done as well.
Abigail turned 12 on March 20th and received a small weaving loom, which she will certainly enjoy using! I also made Abigail and Mary a new blog: www.fairhillsfarm.com/farmgirls. A WordPress blog enables them to insert photographs easily, which they like.
I’m sorry this post is so brief – I hope to add some pictures and post some articles in the not too distant future, but I have a History Exam tomorrow (yes, right out of Spring Break!), so I need to study what I can about Truman and the beginnings of the Cold War before getting a good night’s sleep.
I hope to write again soon!
