Putting the Spring in Break

Last week was spring break for my dashingly handsome sidekick and kids. We stayed home and did ... not much of any particular note except:
  • lots of weed pulling (dashingly handsome sidekick and small slaves)
  • lots of essay writing (dashingly handsome sidekick who is working feverishly on his National Board certification)
  • lots of gymnastics (six year old upped her hours over the break and hit some new milestones-- her first kip & cartwheel on the beam; she's getting ready for state testing this summer)
  • lots of reading (especially my eleven year old -- pictured below)
  • and I wrote more than 10,000 words on my YA contemporary WiP. (Yay!)
So it was a productive vaykay and I enjoyed the sleeping in a lot. It'll be tough to get everyone up early and back to school tomorrow, and I won't lie, I'll miss my crazy kids (even if they do fight a lot).

How about you? When was your spring break? Did you do anything fun?


  1. I love that the cat is curled up right behind her. Cats and books always seem to go well together.

  2. Looks like you had a relaxing and productive vacation. My spring break is next week. I can't wait!

  3. I am slightly ashamed to admit that our spring break was last week as well, as I have no such productivity to report! Well, aside from doing a really great job filling the hampers...bravo!

  4. Next week. Planning to crash and go to the library lots. We also find a new path to the river. Planning to get outside & go for walks w/ the kiddos as much as possible!

  5. Yay for more words, Amy! :) Glad to hear your spring break was a blast. Now that I am no longer a college student (weird...) I don't have a spring break.... :)

  6. That's one productive week!
    We had a restful and relaxing vacation ... no writing. But I'm getting back into the groove this week.

  7. You were more productive than me when it came to writing, Amy. I was in Anaheim (four days at Disneyland). I didn't get much writing done, but I did manage to brainstorm plot ideas.


Summer Recap

Summer!! has been a crazy whirlwind.  Are we actually starting school again in a few weeks? UNBELIEVEABLE. In the middle of June I finished...
