“Spring Break” at the house

Sometimes you go to DollyWood or the beach or to visit family.  And sometimes you just stay home.

If Josh had been here, it would have been way more fun, but he wasn’t, so we had to make the best of it.  We did school—just math and history and reading.  We got an impromptu visit one evening from a friend bringing over homemade granola bars that were yummy. Each kid had one night that they got to sleep with me. We went for a long walk one morning.  We went to Target to do a little shopping…Mack has birthday money that he is really enjoying spending. He bought some red converse with birthday money from Sweetie and PawPaw.  We found what was making such a horrible smell in my kitchen–a leaking, broken disposal.  ICK!  Thankfully, it got taken care of! It was quite nasty. We met friends at a park for lunch and playing.  We stopped in at Old Navy and Kohls one morning and bought a few spring/summer clothing items.  I did laundry. I mopped! We washed the car.  Bahama Bucks called our name one time  (It called the kids’ names many times, but I only heard it once). There was a lot of jumping on the trampoline. I watched our friend’s kids so they could go on a date and the kids stayed outside for HOURS playing together.  We saw God’s Not Dead 2 last night at Movie Tavern.  The kids have enjoyed playing CLUE, a new game Mack bought at Target. Somehow the kids talked me into J.Christopher’s for breakfast today.  And Josh will be home some time soon, so we are all super excited to have him back with us.

I didn’t take any pictures. I mean, I wouldn’t want to make any of you jealous with all the fun we had around here while you were galavanting here, there and yonder on your Spring Break.

I will add, the traffic around here was DEEEELIGHTFUL.  Like a ghost town of sorts.  A nice bonus for all of us who spent their Spring Break in Woodstock!
