Spring Break. Definitely has a different ring to it now.
And the last couple years, I had been teaching, so the break was welcomed from work and the girls did some school time and some home time.
Last year, we had to pay for school, and E was tiny, so I’m pretty sure they went to school the whole week and never were any wiser.
This year? All four of us girls are home. No school for anybody. And I admit, I’m not good at jam packing the days and the week with events and “stuff” to do, and we just sort of chill.
E loves to play with socks. Mr. Serious helped with some laundry, for for whatever reason, no socks. So he helped. She tried to put them on her feet, then, made a scarf out of one of daddy’s longer socks. Trend setting already.
Heading over to the library is a fun trip and results in happy girls getting to pick through and choose their own books.
(How does she sit like this? It hurts me to look!)
The library during Spring Break used to mean frantically working on a research paper or a lab assignment! Ack.
We’ve leisurely strolled the grocery store, and hit them up for free cookies. E scarfed hers and never let go of that thing. Despite walking passed the huge display, there was no wine purchased or consumed during this Spring Break (thus far anyways. We do have three days to go!)
Biggest surprise, she wants to make lunch for her sister and herself. Who am I to stop her if it’s at 10:30am?
And, finally weather warm enough to hang out in the backyard. Who cares if everything is covered in yellow (and we had the heater on earlier this past weekend) and results in the middle and me sneezing no less than eleventy-billion times? Three girls swinging? Happiness.
Lest you all only see the happy, there has been plenty of PJ lounging, TV/ movie watching, phone playing and overall taking it all in.
