Half Way

It’s hard to believe that we are almost half way through Spring Break.

Over the years, we’ve had some AMAZING Spring Breaks and some incredibly challenging Spring Breaks.

Having 5 kids is incredible. I love each and every one of them. But it’s also got its challenges. The way I look at it, that’s life. Life comes with good and bad and we don’t always get to choose which part of life we encounter. What we get to choose is how we act and react to the different things that we come up against.

My two big girls have moved out. My 18 year old son is working full time and so this Spring Break is just me and the two little boys.

It’s odd. Odd to only have 2 in the house but awesome at the same time.

So far, our first week has just been about chilling, relaxing, and making it through each day. We talked today about what we would like to do next week and the boys have a few ideas. We’ll see how much I actually have energy for when we get there.

Today, I’m thankful that this first half of Spring Break has been pretty chill and that we aren’t overwhelmed with chaos and stress.

Are you on Spring Break?

How’s it gone for you, so far?

  1. I am grateful that my parents are here visiting. Haven’t seen them in 4.5 months. They’ve been down south.

  2. And yes, we are on Spring Break as well. It has also been pretty chill, with my in-laws here and now my parents. It is the first year that my husband is off work during Spring Break. Nice to have him around.

    Next week we have a couple of appointments going on, but still pretty chill.
