This past week was all the kids' Spring Break.
I was very wary about this week. I had no solid plans to keep everyone busy. I kept thinking of all the additional things I had to do with the kids home. I was a little (ok, a lot) overwhelmed. But I picked up and strapped on my big girl pants, and we ended up having a pretty good week.
We went to the playground, then hiked down a trail. And much to our surprise, we saw a small herd of longhorns and a donkey (see my previous post for photos). That afternoon, I pulled out an old school oscillating sprinkler since it was 94 degrees outside. The kids had a blast running in around in the water!
Wednesday, we drove up to Georgetown and went bowling at Mel's. We bowled 2 games, and the boys loved it! Cassidy had a small meltdown during the second game. Seeing as she's 2, I gave her a little slack. I even bowled with them! I'm a horrible bowler, and I didn't bumpers to help me out either. I won't tell you my score, but let's just say, it wasn't good.
Thursday, we met a group of friends at Jumpoline in Wells Branch. The kids jumped around, played dodgeball, and pretended to be ninjas for an hour. And I only lost Sawyer and Cassidy one time. With a place that big, it was bound to happen. I found both of them in the back trying to play dodgeball with the older kids. I bounced all of them around on the trampolines too.
Plus, it was St. Patrick's Day on Thursday! We all wore different shades of green, and I captured a fun moment with the kids.
All in all, it's been a good, exhausting week. I collapsed into bed a few nights, and I'm definitely ready for school to start back up on Monday.
