It's the kids' spring break this week and we really have no plans. I wanted to do at least a little something special so we went to the zoo yesterday. (Here's where I remind everyone that it was 26 degrees in Chicago on our way up there.) But, we know how to bundle up and all I could see ahead of us was fresh, outside air. I didn't care how cold it was.
I was so tempted to save some of these photos for my April FOUR post but I am holding out for warmer weather. It has been known to happen on occasion.
A huge bonus to doing outdoor things in not-so-awesome-outdoor weather: you have the place all to yourselves.
We are still going to have fun this week but just no big plans looming overhead. I do hope to turn the playroom into Noah's room and transfer some toys down to the finished side of the basement (and hopefully transfer most of them to someone else's house via freecycle.) It will be Noah's first time rooming alone since he was a baby. (His request.) Carter & Gray will take the bunk beds in the boys room and we have BIG plans for Ivy to take over Gray's awesome firetruck bed. Did you get all that? Because there will be a quiz. Also, you know what this means? Time for another baby! JUST KIDDING.
Other than that, I'm not on spring break so I'll be working as usual and also putting some finishing touches on Listen To Your Mother stuff. Speaking of which, if you want to know more about my background in theater you can read my interview with Meagan Francis, Following a dream: a dedicated mom of four rekindles her love of the stage. Jazz hands!
Seriously. I was just kidding. Four is our magic number.
