It's Spring Break!!

And I am so happy to say we are staying home!   I am still recovering from our Christmas vacation.  and I vow to never go on Christmas vacation again.  at least for now.  However, I know the kids had a great time with cousins over Christmas and that is what really matters. (right?)

Anyway, the kids have the week off from school and I have no idea what we are going to do, but I get a week off from making peanut butter sandwiches (at least in the morning)!  I used to make one sandwich for Janessa but this year it is 3 or 4 sandwiches for kids in the morning.  Because Cameron started school and needs one (creamy peanut butter and grape jelly), and Andy decided he never wants school lunch again, and sometimes Dustin and Brennen take lunches (but usually not on the same day).  That is 8 slices of bread per day.  We go through bread like crazy.  And peanut butter.  though sometimes Andy and Dustin take meat sandwiches.  And yes, I could have the kids make their sandwiches themselves but it is a lot less hassle for me to do it.  (Dustin is never ready on time to make his own anyway so I guess I spoil him).

so, this week maybe, just maybe I can sleep in a little bit.

I am sure it will be a week of video games and TV.  with some scooter and bike riding and trampoline jumping if the weather is nice.  some friends over.  and some fighting mixed in there.  and I am hoping to throw in at least one "field trip" somewhere.  But I haven't thought about it that much yet...

By next Monday I know I will be more than happy to get up early and make peanut butter sandwiches again, but for now, I am just excited to sleep in.
