Spring Break

Last week the big boys and I were out of school for Spring Break.  I had a list of things to accomplish during the week.  Hardly any it got done.  By Thursday I was pretty down on myself and what I had not accomplished.  At dinner I was lamenting about the summer.  How I would really need to get on a schedule this summer if I hoped to get my book finished. 

Usually, Ryan glazes over during these type speeches.  He nods and smiles, "Whatever you need to do."  See why I love him so?  But that's not how it went down this time.  This time he got all up in my business.  Short version: you go ninety to nothing all the time.  You need rest.  Don't feel bad if things didn't get done.  The boys seem happy and healthy.  Isn't that enough?

So, here's what I did do this Spring Break:
  • laughed
  • watched Sam's team win their 1st tournament of the year (in the longest game EVER, seriously 3 hours - he's 9)
  • napped - ALOT
  • ran in my 2nd 5k
  • left the computer almost every time Brennan came to pull me out
  • attempted to get Brennan a hair cut
  • laughed every time Brennan called me Daaadeee (Ryan is Da-Da)
  • worried about Sam and Zac on their Abiliene adventure
  • laughed at their Abiliene pictures
  • inspired a former student
  • finished an awesome book
  • wrote an awesome book review
  • got a pedicure and sparkly blue toenails - ya know to match the baseball team ;) sports momma
  • laughed every time anyone tried to get Brennan to say Momma
  • went to see Diary of a Wimpy Kid with Sam and Zac
  • got total momma points because I pre-purchased Wimpy Kid tickets - the show was sold out
  • had to be a front row joe at Wimpy Kid - was totally worth it
  • laughed more
  • saw my very best friend in the whole wide world
  • was sad to leave vbfitwww
  • made chocolate chip pancakes
  • played in the snow
But thank you sweet LORD, there was one thing I didn't do this Spring Break - take Brennan to the doctor.  And if you know us or have been reading this blog any length of time, you know that's a big deal.  If you don't you can read about sweet Brenno here.

Here are my two favorite pictures from Spring Break.  The first is Brennan eating ice cream after the failed hair cut.  The serious look on his face is due to the fact that I removed the ice cream to take the picture. 

Up next, the big boys (Sam and Zac) and I outside on Sunday in our 2 inches of unexpected snow.  We had just had a snowball fight.

I love love love that you said "front row joe." Does anyone who didn't grow up at the Rockwall Movies 8 know what that is? Awesomeness. I feel 16 again!

Congrats on your 5K and no doctor visits!!

Do you think Hex Hall is appropriate for an 11 y.o. who reads at a high school level and loves fantasy fiction but hates the thought of boobs and boys?

Love ya, friend!
