I remember spring break being the best thing in the world. It was a week of fun and sun; a week of sleeping in and having absolutely nothing to do.
Now that I am the parent of a child who has spring break, I no longer look forward to it with such anticipation or excitement. Even though she gets spring break, I do not.
So, this week has been a balancing act. Trying to take time to enjoy her vacation while also finding the time to do what was required at work. Not an easy task.
A few hours at work each day , a few hours at home, and many hours having fun. We have written poems, played with pictures, and the Diva turned part of the house into an ever changing construction site.
Today spring break officially ends, but we still have a few more adventures planned to be shared with our house guest who arrives Saturday evening. (We are going to check out some caves and take a tour of the White House)
We are rested and ready to go. We are ready for Easter and all associated activities. Spring has sprung, and we are dressed in shorts and T-shirts to celebrate its arrival!
Despite my earlier reservations, this spring break has been fun. (Cleaning the house tomorrow before guests arrive... that will be a different story entirely!)
