I find that one of the nicest things about homeschooling is that we are not tied to a school vacation schedule. If I want to take a day trip, I take a day trip. If I want to spend 2 weeks in Puerto Rico, ummmm...gee, I guess we have to do a little planning first. But I can always send the Spinner family to visit! So for the next two weeks, I am dedicating my strip to a very special trip to Puerto Rico, loosely based on our real life adventure when Marina was 8 and Chase was 5.
