Spring Break

It is so nice to have a week off from school. I love Spring Break, it's like a preview to our summer and what's to come.

This weekend we had an adults only weekend with our friends at a local winery. It was a fabulous time away! We had the best time!

I made Max a dentist appointment for 8:30 a.m today. I have no idea what I was kids sleep in during our breaks! It was a rough start to our day. To say my little guy was apprehensive would be an understatement. We have to go see another dentist on Friday. It should be lots of fun. I was a little worried to hear that after the one and only X-ray they were able to get that he has an extra tooth with his front teeth. There are only a small percentage of people this happens 2%. He will have to see an oral surgeon when he is around 9 to have it removed. That was a little scary for this mommy to hear(and I was already traumatized from his kicking and screaming--I don't know where he gets it from-I Love going to the dentist!!!)
Fortunately, our day turned around when we went shopping. I found adorable Easter outfits and a few other good deals at the outlets. We also went to lunch at Chick-fi1-a, and had some more fun shopping at JoAnn's and Target.

The kids played their little hearts out this afternoon and pulled out toys they haven't had time to play with in a long time. They also cleaned out toy bins and threw things away. I guess they felt like spring cleaning,too!

They also did an Easter craft. I have one planned each day this week. Today we made a jelly bean prayer poster and of course they ate jelly beans while reading and coloring the prayer, tomorrow we're making resurrection eggs. They are loving the crafts.

We have a few fun things planned this week. I'm looking forward to sleeping in, relaxing, and being caught up on my laundry! I'm most excited to celebrate holy week and Easter with my sweet family!

Practice Time

March has turned out to be a very busy month for our family. The kids started soccer a few weeks ago and we haven't sat down since! We have been spending half of our week nights at the soccer fields for practice or clinics.

The kids are loving it! I am loving that it's keeping our family active and the kids haven't really watched tv during the week in over three weeks(or really missed it for that matter). We've also made it a priority to sit down at the dinner table even though we're on the go. I have been consistently meal planning since January and it's been working out so well! Now if only I could get caught up on my laundry!! Instead we've just added more grass stains and stinky soccer socks to the mix!

They had their first game this past weekend and it was a blast to watch them. I was one proud mommy! I had no idea they would play as well as they did since they only had a couple of practices.
