Back to reality


Spring break is officially over.  Excuse me while I cry.

Back to school today.  And of course, that means me and the kids.  I wonder if my kids were in public school if I would look forward to spring break being over.

I’d probably get a lot of housework and errands done, but lately I’ve really been enjoying doing homeschool with them.  Maybe it’s becuase I feel so much better than I did when I was in my first trimester in the fall.  Or maybe it’s because I know we only have another month left until I plan to be done with our curriculum for the year.

But, like it or not, today is back to reality, schoolwork and schedules.

On my to-do list for today:

1.  Laundry – everyone’s clothes, including washing all of Andy’s little newborn and 0-3 month outfits.

2.  Preparing dinner for tonight – we’re having chicken fajitas and corn on the cobb.

3.  Scheduling Ella’s end of the year homeschool test (the Woodcock Johnson).

4.  Sweep and mop all the floors downstairs.

5.  Pick up new inhaler from the drug store.

6.  School with the kids (about 3 hours worth today for our 1st day back -a light day to break them back in gently).

7.  Text all of my egroup girls to remind them that egroup resumes this week & then plan our lesson.

8.  Grocery store – I need a few things for dinner tonight.

9.  Take Ella to dance.

10.  Clean out filing cabinets in our office and re-organize all of our bills/paperwork.  We’re trying to stay on a budget this year, and I think getting organized will help!

11.  Pick up thank you cards from Target for my baby shower gifts.

12.  Schedule Justin’s 6 year well visit.  His birthday was in January, but I don’t like to take him to the doctors during sick season.

I hope your spring break was as relaxing as mine!  Having a week off of school and activities made me super excited for summer vacation!!!  The countdown begins!

My kids and their best friends, Jake & Josh.  Spring break meant play dates, outside activities and frozen treats!

    Funny how the oldest children know how to pose for the picture and the second ones make faces!
