In years past I have kicked off Spring Break, and any other holiday from school, with donuts. And a plan.
But this Spring Break, all I have are the donuts. And a loose idea about what I would like to do this week. I'm trying to keep it un-planned so the teenagers feel like they have more of a say in what they'd like to do. But at the very least I want to:
*Go to Alamo Drafthouse for lunch and a movie
*Get the yards raked and some weed and feed sprinkled on
*Sew a little on that skirt
*Buy groceries, get a handle on laundry, make some yummy dinners
*Visit the library and read some good books
I think Scout also wants to go see a free SXSW show. Bubbie wants to glue himself to my iTouch. And The Girl is all about staying out late with friends. Firstborn and hubby will be working - no Spring Break for them, but at least mornings will be quieter and evenings more relaxed. A far cry from the days I had activities, lunches, snacks, and rest time planned down to the T. But that's what happens as they all slowly grow up...and out.
