The kids are back to school! Spring break is over. What is it about Spring break? I know I cooked more, so that meant more dishes to clean. The kids must of changed their clothes at least 2 times a day, so that meant more laundry. Between fishing, beach days, sleepovers and a trip to the zoo. Taking them to their friends house and picking them up. I don't think there was a day that I had to myself on Spring break. Every night I hit that pillow and fell right off to sleep. Only to wake again to another day of things to do. It was a busy week and we had perfect weather. I guess we couldn't of asked for more.

To answer my own question.......Spring break is all about the kids!

Have a good day!
