Winter Break

It is the first day of the kids' winter break from school. Something started in the 70s to save on heating costs has stuck around ever since. I think it is ridiculous since we just had Christmas break, but I have heard from teachers that kids are going stir crazy and the break does everyone some good. Everyone but me that is, lol. I need to figure out how to keep three kids (1 a bored preteen, 1 a wild often manic child, and 1 that is a spoiled little princess) entertained. HA! Wish me luck.

I imagine my week is going to be rather boring here in blog land, so I had an idea to spice things up. We are going to have a week of pictures. No words... just a few photos from each day. Should be interesting. A few blogs I read are having a "yellow" themed week too, so may be I can find some yellow in my life to show off.

So that is it word wise for my until next Monday. Hmmm... wonder if I am going to be able to keep without talking that long!!

This is a great idea! Good luck with it. I'll be tuning in to see what you show. And Yellow week sounds awesome! Might try to do that too. Could be hard though.

Hi Kerry
Good luck with the kids at home. Maybe you could take in a matinee. I'm sure you'll take some great photos...Oh, and the one of Rusty was so cute!

Good luck keeping the little people busy today. Mine are home today too. I'm going to take them to the bouncy house place for an hour to wear them out. Hoping that will buy me some time this afternoon!
