On the way out

Spring Break is well on it's way out the door. It has been a good one, but now it's time to get my game face back on. Before that, here are the highlights from the past couple of days. Again, I forgot my camera: the kids and I discovered a new park today. Not really new, but new to us. We went and the kids had a blast. They ran and got a lot of energy out. Then when we came home, the kids donned their swim suits (they have been asking to play in the sprinklers all week!) and I drug out the mopping bucket. Who says mopping can't be fun? I really needed to get the floors mopped, and the kids really wanted to have some fun! So, we put the two together. We had tons of rags, some warm water, and dawn dish liquid. Austin kept yelling, "Man, I didn't know we were going to have so much fun today!" as he was sliding around. It was a lot of work, but now my floors are clean, and the kids are happy! By the end, they were sliding on the stomachs!

Thursday wasn't a big ta-do either. We hung out around the house and played outside a little. Abi drove around in her car until she decided it was too sunny out and went back inside. Austin refined his skateboarding skills. He's teaching himself how to jump up, make the skateboard bounce off the ground and then land back on it. Alex, his best buddy, was watching and trying too.

Unfortunately, tomorrow there is a 90% chance of rain (BOOOO) and the temperature is supposed to drop back down to the 50's for a couple of days. I can't say that I am pleased with this forecast, our rodeo outing is still coming up! I don't think that I have ever gone to the rodeo on a day that it wasn't cold or rainy...or both! We will have to wait and see what the weather has in store for us.

When they're done mopping at your place you can send 'em to my house anytime! :) You're such a fun mom!
