This week was Spring Break.
That means my kids were all home from school for a week.
Lots of people around here go on trips or take their kids to do fun things.
Not around our house.
Who needs a va-cation? We spent the week at home on stay-cation.
We (minus Allen, who still has to work this week) all slept in until at least 9:00 a.m. every day.
I worked for a few hours this week, which is seriously fun for me.
Coolister went to physical therapy, a 'breakfast party thing' and made plans for prom. He also studied for the ACT all week because tomorrow is The Big Day.
ElemenoB bought a new dress and painted her bedroom. She's having friends over on Saturday. She also went running.
Thumbelina went shopping and spent some time with a friend. She wore her pajamas more than anything and watched her collection of Barbie movies a few times each. (I wish I was kidding.)
All-a-Boy played Lego Star Wars on the Wii almost everyday. The one day that I banned the Wii he had some adventures with a friend. He also worked on creating a unique Pinewood Derby car all on his own which allowed for plenty of feeling-sorry-for-himself (we are all fairly certain that he secretly enjoys this).
Cowgirl locked herself in the bathroom and cut her own bangs. Good news: They're almost straight. Bad news: She kind of looks like Spock. Good news: I'm taking her to the salon on Saturday.
Princess got to have a friend over one day. But the real treat for her was the sleeping in every morning and running around in the backyard without shoes once the snow went away and the sun came to visit.
For Hubba, Curly and Little O, it was business as usual - but with bigger friends around to make it more exciting.
Life is good.
Happy Spring Break.
