A Vacation from Everything

Sorry it has been a while since I updated the blog. For my Spring Break, I pretty much took a break from everything. I didn't answer email, I didn't blog, I didn't do work, I didn't do laundry. It was great. However, it has made me busier now. Plus, as school rolls to a close, things always get busier. It is hard for me to think that I only have 7 weeks left with my kiddos. Where did the year go?

Jack is cruising along like a champion. He now prefers to walk more than crawl. He is pretty slow, but I am glad that he hasn't figured out the run speed yet.

We had a great time up in Alliance. It was pretty nice weather most of the time we were there. Jack went on several wagon rides with his Gram and her dog Archie. He loved the rides so much that he would just go and sit in the wagon and dream about riding. It was quiet darling! We also went and fed the ducks. When we first arrived, Jack was really freaked out. He was crying and clinging to me. However, he quickly warmed up and by the time we left, he was walking up to the ducks with the bread. He usually seemed to have the philosophy of one bite for them, one bite for himself. He also spent a lot of time trying to learn to blow bubbles. He didn't have any success, but my mom caught some great pics. I have great pics of most of this, but have misplaced the camera, so it will be a while before I get them up online. I am hoping to get that done sometime this weekend.

We are gearing up for a snow storm. I am hoping that it isn't as bad as they say it is going to be. We are running to the store to pick up the essentials. We are also going to pick up some beer because the Jayhawks play tonight and we won't have to run out if it is nasty. We are also going to open gym with our friends. We had a great time last time, so hopefully we are as lucky again this time.

If you're wondering about Nick, he is working hard as always. This project is really "kicking his ass". We are looking forward to taking a nice break in June.

Rock Chalk Jayhawk!
