The close of Spring Break is slowly approaching for our household. We thoroughly enjoyed the time off… at least I know I did. Not having to wake up at the butt-crack of dawn every morning + force the little ones out of bed has been a treat in itself. We celebrated Reston’s 11th birthday with a trip to San Diego @ the top of the week. Legoland + Sea World were our destinations. Everyone had a great time, and of course, I relished the time away, along with the change of scenery. The kids were sick for 2 days, and there were school projects to complete, but things have settled back down and it’s Saturday. I’ve got tons of stuff to do, but I plan to ease into it. I hope you all have a fab Saturday, and are able to spend time doing something you love.
Spring break is off to an amazing start for the kiddies. They haven’t been home much and they are loving it! Yesterday they spent the day with their cousin and had a spur of the moment sleep over. Uncle Jamahl took them to the beach late in the evening (I opted out of this adventure because it was soooo windy and cold. The thought of getting sand in the fro was extremely unappealing). He texted me back this picture and I just fell in love. I love kids. I love how cold, sleet, sandstorms, hail or thunder doesn’t mean a thing to them. They wanted to get in the water and ran straight for it. It didn’t matter that they did not have a change of clothes, that their shoes and socks would be wet, that they would be cold upon exiting the water and have to spend the rest of the evening in their underwear! I love that about children. It’s something I have to remind myself that I used to have, and can have again if I choose to let go. So that was my lesson learned yesterday.
Maybe a fro full of sand isn’t so bad after all. ☺
Enjoy this day!
