Keeping Up With...Family (Spring Break and Easter)

Last week was very fun and relaxing!  The boys were off from school for the week and we made the most of it by sleeping in, playing with friends and enjoying not having a schedule.  When I asked the boys what they wanted to do for spring break, they really didn't want to do much and I figured taking a week off from the hustle wouldn't be the worst thing for all of us.

We had play dates on both Monday and Tuesday and the boys enjoyed playing with their friends.  Then Wednesday and Thursday we had "stay home" days where we just chilled around the house playing and watching a little more TV than we normally do.  All four days I had to teach in the morning, so they also spent some time in the gym child care with other kids.

On Friday we were surprised with Adrian getting the day off for the second week in a row!  I had a class to teach in the morning so I headed there (alone!)  When I got home, we headed out to Scramblers for a family brunch.  Daniel has been asking to go here as a family for the past 2 weeks, but we haven't been able to find a good time.  It went surprisingly well, everyone was well behaved, ate everything and there were no potty accidents.  We headed to Target after eating to buy Adrian's Father's Day/Birthday gift of a new TV.  AJ also spent some of his allowance on a new super hero masher.

Friday night we had a friend's birthday party to attend.  It was a swimming party at a local community center.  We had a blast!  It was so fun to see the boys running around and swimming with their friends.  They all did a great job of swimming and listening to all of the adults.  I even got to sit for a few minutes in the hot tub!  We swam for nearly 3 hours and also enjoyed some cake and pizza.  We left exhausted and happy.

Saturday AJ woke up with a very high fever and a headache.  It seemed to come out of no where.  He was sick all that day and all Sunday as well.  That altered our plans for the weekend to be mostly time at home.  We skipped swimming lessons and chilled at home for the day.  We colored our eggs that night so we were ready for the Easter Bunny.  The best part about this change was that I finished every thing on my to do list!!
Sunday we had planned to all head to my brother's for breakfast but since AJ was still sick and Zak was still sleeping when it was time to leave, only Daniel and I went.  Daniel had a blast doing the egg hunt at our house and at Uncle Carl's house by himself.  We had a nice visit with Carl, Sarah and Isabelle and then headed home to re-hide our eggs so Zak and AJ could find them.  The rest of Sunday was spent eating candy, finishing the to do list, playing, relaxing & getting ready for a busy week.

It wasn't exactly the spring break and Easter that I had planned but it was wonderful.  We didn't get to go to the zoo, COSI or swimming at the Y.  But the good news about that is we still have all of those things to do this summer!  And since AJ took Monday and Tuesday off from school, he is feeling better.  Hopefully this is the end of anyone being sick for the rest of the school year!
