I've been absent for far too long! I have had such good intentions on more than one occasion, but just never got it done. We are just coming off of spring break week, so certainly haven't had a lack of things going on, but that's just what kept me from doing what I'd like to be doing most.... ;)
(sitting around in my lounge clothes; casually cleaning house, throwing in a load of laundry every so often, sipping a delicious St@rbucks, surfing the web).... ah... I wish.
Instead, we were visiting friends, packing, cleaning, celebrating abby's 6th birthday, showing the house, and outta town to a ginormous indoor waterpark. My kids heaven on earth. As we were walking in to the resort, one of them muttered, "this is paradise." And there ya have it, 'our' spring break!
I will be posting ALOT these next few days to catch up!
Here's one of my favorite moments captured from our break: let me set the stage a bit: our oldest son just moved his room to the basement of our house; he's 10 and wanted his 'own' space instead of sharing with his brother, like he had been for the last 2 years. We already had a queen bed in what was the spare bedroom, which we let him takeover. He's LOVING the bed, and each weekend, either Matthew or Abby has wanted to sleep down there with him. Over break, they convinced us to let them all 3 sleep together. We went down for Emily to tell them goodnight and she freaked out.....couldn't stand it that the big 3 were there without her! So, we put her in with them for about 20 minutes and let them all giggle and goof around. I love seeing all of them laughing together and enjoying one another so much!
