since I've blogged. How sad! I love writing, it's therapeutic. I often write things I don't normally process on my own. It's like my version of talking out loud to myself (which, don't get me wrong, I do that as well) and I've been lacking.
Today was the first day of spring break. No major plans, which is just fine as far as our kids are concerned. We have had the half-baked idea that we would go camping all week. The campgrounds are free right now...but you have no services: bathrooms, electricity. We have both of those things in the camper, so we'd be set. But we chose not to. The weather? Totally cooperating, stunningly gorgeous. But still. Nope. Caden is desperate to go. All too soon the campgrounds will be fully open...
I've found that life is a lot easier when Avery is home from school. She plays with Declan (who is easily "bored" at home with mommy and the twins) and typically with Madelyn for large chunks of time. I mean, 4 solid hours today. They're just holed up in her bedroom doing lordknowswhat but Idon'tcare. It's awesome! And then Caden and Macey will play outside together which is OH so sweet. Caden runs around getting her bikes and toys and she just bosses. Caden is pretty good on his own as long as he has his guitar. If Fresh Beat Band happens to be on at the same time then he will jam out to that show with his guitar. And Macey...usually with me most of the time. "Help you, mommy?" "No, nothing right now baby." "Ok. What dis mommy?" and so on.
Life is trucking along!
