I credit Pinterest (and yes it is impossible for me to have a single post without talking about them) for it, this spring break has been amazing! I am way more laid back and unorganized than I ever like to admit so most spring breaks we pretty much just take a break from, well, everything :).
We had our pajama/fort building/movie day on Friday and it was enough to fuel me for some get out the house time the rest of the week. Monday we put on our rain boots and headed out for a nature hike. The kids had so much fun and I hurt my cheeks smiling at their joy in splashing and their sheer excitement in finding a worm!! a rolly polly!! look mom a giant stick!!
We also had lunch with Daddy on Monday, which was Jack's only request for what fun thing he would like to do over spring break, now that will make a Daddy feel special. Tuesday we headed to Target (which is a highly requested destination from the kiddos, though you know I happily oblige). They love Target because they know they get to have popcorn and they wanted to spend some of their money that they had saved up or gotten as a gift. Mommy got two new spring Essie nail polish colors with her money, so it was a win win.
Wednesday was a bit non-spring break of a day for us, Jack had speech in the morning and then we ran errands. But we got to have lunch with our adoption group and it was one of the highlights of the week for me. The park was swarming with adoptive/interracial families, and I got to meet several new families. It was so comforting to see something that I have been asking God for since we began this process become a reality, families like ours to walk along side of on this journey, God's goodness is always overwhelming to me when I stop and pay attention.
Today I kind of lost my mind and decided that I should do a craft with the kids, after all crafting is Kylynn's love language and it's something I never do with her. I found this shaving cream painting project for Easter and thought I can do this...maybe (that's the best it gets when it comes to me and crafts). First I gathered all my supplies and could not find the construction paper anywhere so we spent the next 20 minutes searching and gave up and headed out to the dollar store. Perhaps it should be noted that I look like I have the flu with my sweats/old t-shirt/frizzy hair/no make-ups self, but we only need one thing, and I have no time for dignity when I just want to get this
I will now go and recover by sleeping and then only if there's time taking a shower. Tomorrow Daddy is taking off of work (can I get an Amen!) and we're off for an adventure and I do mean adventure because we have no idea what we're doing, but by golly we are going somewhere and doing something!
How's the break going friends? What is the most fun things you've done? Did it involve crafting :)?
