comments/spring break

i have a new comment "system" {not really sure what to call it}!  being the new blogger that i am, i've been responding to your wonderful comments and questions through my email inbox {usually on my phone}.  apparently blogger doesn't work that way.  i'm now wondering where all my responses to have gone!  for those of you who have asked questions and have assumed i've snubbed you - i answered...promise, just in the wrong place.  so now my new comment "system" will email me your comments {like normal}, but then i can respond back and it will post underneath your comment and also to your email...i think.

this week has been quite the week for me - zac out of town, two sick girls, and three half-days for my older two.  i'm ready to add this one to the books and enjoy a better week this coming week!  next week is spring break here, so last sunday we sat down and wrote out a "spring break bucket list" with Madeline {age 6} as the scribe.  Here's what we came up with...

{the scan cut off what she wrote at the bottom, but that was my favorite part, "alsom, cool, spandtacler!" aka "awesome, cool, spectacular" }  it's so funny to me how kids hear words!
swimming, fishing, day at the zoo, hike at hole rock, art classes for older two, picnic at the park, lucy, lisa and mark are coming {my sister and her fam}, sleepover at grandparents', family bike ride, and camping.
writing this out has made them so excited for the spring break, which i'm so grateful for because i always feel guilty when we don't vacation for the week.  and it's totally going to hold me accountable - i can't back out now!

It hit 90 degrees here this week!  These two only lasted ten minutes before they opted for the shady porch :)
Have a great weekend!

    Hole in the rock is on our list too... we should go together. We love that "hike."

    Put me on the list for Hole in the Rock, not the zoo, yes on picnic. Can't wait for Lucy.
