Hello World!

Spring break for my kids starts next week, but unlike last year, when we went to England for nearly two weeks, we are staying home and saving our money so that we can go to England again next year. Which means that I need to be the entertainment committee.

I'm sure we'll go to the zoo one day, and maybe the movies if Scooby-Doo 2 isn't too terrible. I want to get out to the new NASA building by Dulles airport, where the space shuttle Enterprise is now housed -- one of my sons saw it on a school field trip, but I still haven't -- and we'll probably go see the dinosaurs at the Smithsonian. We haven't been to the aquarium in Baltimore in awhile. My in-laws have offered to take the kids up to Gettysburg for a couple of days, to visit the battlefields and a horse farm. And if the weather's good, and the flowers keep coming out, we can start the week with the Cherry Blossom Festival and then go hiking in the Blue Ridge.

At least spring break is a break from soccer, no fencing, no baseball, no violin, no Hebrew school. It's rare for us to have a weekend day with less than three things scheduled. Makes family time rather difficult. Though I know where everyone will be on Passover...after the meal, in front of the television, of course, watching the NCAA finals.

March Madness doesn't come to fruition until April.
