What does Spring Break mean to you? Vacation? Memories of vacations? Spring cleaning? Kids out of school?
Well ... here's what we've been doing this week:
1. My 14-yr-old daughter "dog-sits" to earn money. So, she has been babysitting two wiener dogs (is that what they're really called?), two guinea pigs, another dog of unknown breed, and a large fish (for reals). Plus, we have a giant dog of our own. Our house feels like a pet store.
2. My 17-yr-old son has been bit by the cooking bug this week. So, he's been selecting recipes (about four at a time), going to the grocery store on his own, and making yummy food for us. So far, he's made (from-scratch-home-made) cinnamon rolls, crab-apple salad (but there's neither crab nor apples in it), marinated white-bbq chicken, and breakfast burritos. Next, he plans on making bbq beef sandwiches, chicken-broccoli braid, craisin-almond salad, and something else I can't recall off the top of my head.
3. House cleaning ... we started ... but then got distracted by a movie marathon. Red-box is our friend.
4. My other son has been working endlessly to get caught up on school work that he fell behind on - - bummer for him. But, he has had a good attitude about it.
Anyhow ... what are you doing for spring break?
